But Kitson's argument is that around $200,000 of that is merchandise it couldn’t sell and is sitting in its warehouse waiting to be shipped back to Majestic Mills. The store seems to be fed up with the wave celebrity designers that's been popular lately. “We are very cautious with celebrity lines since we have learned from the mistakes of celebrity lines past such as Victoria Beckham’s dVb and Lauren Conrad’s Lauren Conrad Collection. Not every movie will be a blockbuster — even if it looks great on paper, it takes hard work and great retail partnerships to make these celebrity clothing lines blockbusters,” said Dean Khial, Kitson’s director of operations. Ouch. Khial added Kitson would be countersuing Majestic Mills for breach of contracts. May the best dressed contender win! Just kidding.
