No doubt you've heard the news and corresponding cries of despair about Ann Demeulemeester stepping down from her label. It was surprising and saddening news to wake up to. Ann has provided many with a world of beauty, she was one of the first designers to captivate me back before I had discovered this black and thoughtful niche. Her vision appealed to my inner goth, yet was more grown up and sophisticated than what I had previously been exposed to. I always feel strong wearing her pieces, and I know she evoked similar emotions in whoever wore her magic.
Ann Demeulemeester the label will continue on without her and I hope some of that magic will still remain. Although I want it to be otherwise sometimes the time is right to move on. I wish her the best for the future in whatever she does, and am very grateful for the inspiration and beauty she has provided to me and so many others.
