Christopher Kane Shuts It Down

If there is one thing that keeps everyone in the industry constantly amused it has got to be the fashion rumor mill. Go ahead, tell someone in the industry that you hear from an undisclosed source that’s close to the brand that designerX is leaving and going to brandY, it will spread like wildfire. Well, of course, the same thing happened yesterday when Suzy Menkes of IHT churned out that Christopher Kane could be heading to Dior. Being the natural gossipers that we all are, we tweeted about it and blogged about it and even told our mothers.

Well in today’s fashion news Christopher Kane has released a statement shooting down any speculation that he would be going to Dior. Kane spoke to Vogue UK saying “While it is incredibly flattering that I could be considered for a role at a house such as Dior at this stage in my career, I can confirm that I have not been approached. I am focused on developing my own label and my ongoing collaboration with Donatella Versace for Versus.

There you have it kids. We can’t wait to see what else this rumor mill comes out with — possibly Stella McCartney for Dior? Or Tory Burch?
