In March, rumors surfaced that Richard Chai was being considered for the creative-director position at Bill Blass. Peacock Holdings bought the bankrupt label formerly helmed by Peter Som late last year, with plans to revive it and put on a runway show at September Fashion Week. But though almost two months ago Peacock heads promised to make a decision on a new creative director within a month, the position remains unfilled. "We're talking to people, but there's nothing I can divulge," Peacock executive Scott Patti told the Daily. So, sadly, Blass probably won't walk this September. Maybe Chai isn't being considered anymore? [FWD]
