This brand seems to have more issues than a box has tissues. Page Six is confirming Halston chief executive officer Bonnie Takhar was let go from the fashion house yesterday.
Takhar had been with Halston since the brand's relaunch in 2007 from Jimmy Choo, but sources said creative differences within the company led to her ousting. Apparently chief creative director Sarah Jessica Parker (and the face of the label), was visibly upset in Halston's SoHo offices last week after learning Takhar was forced to leave the vintage-inspired house at the request of the board.
A source told Page Six, "Sarah and Bonnie had a meeting on Friday in Halston's offices to discuss problems with the latest collection. Sarah has been a strong supporter of Bonnie for a very long time, and has been the sole voice supporting her against the board and shareholders. She has been fighting this for a very long time. She believed in Bonnie. She was emotional and upset because this finally came to a head."
Halston board member Harvey Weinstein said in a statement, "Sarah Jessica is a huge supporter of Bonnie's, but it was time to change direction. It was the rest of the board that made the decision. No one was more steadfast to Bonnie than Sarah Jessica."
A source also confirmed Takhar's resumé was found in an office printer last week. Ouch.
