Mayle Takes a Bow
Jane Mayle says farewell this November with her last collection and retirement from the brand. With profits up to five million yearly, the lack of success does not play into her reasons for an exit. Instead the rat race pressure of creating collection after collection without the time to relish in her creations has caused her fashion fatigue. “I feel I have just become another cog in that machinery,” she said to WWD in reference to the accelerated production processes. As a result, the designer who finds inspiration creating clothing pieces for the sake of dreaming has decided that her leave will maintain the meaning of her work. With fashion darlings like Alexander Wang prohibiting celebrity attendance from his recent fashion show, perhaps others are feeling the same need for “fashion for fashion’s sake.”
