The fashion industry is having quite a shake-up at the moment, and we can hardly keep track of the rumours about who's being hired and fired. But here's a confirmed fact for you - Clare Waight Keller is leaving her post at Pringle of Scotland.
The designer, who has worked for the Brit heritage label for over five years, told WWD that 'Its a sad moment but the perfect time to close my era at Pringle. I leave incredibly proud of Pringles growth from a Scottish knitwear company to an international luxury brand.'
Waight Keller has given no reason for her exit although she did say that it was partly due to her personal life - she's expecting her third child at the moment. And no official leaving date given, the a/w 2011 collection that she showed at London Fashion Week was the last that she will design for the label.More
