The designers of Sigerson Morrison, Kari Sigerson and Miranda Morrison, quit their positions at the shoe brand on March 15 without much of a fanfare. Could it be that the label's parent company, Marc Fisher Footwear is planning major changes?
We’re moving forward,” said Susan Itzkowitz, president at Marc Fisher. “We have a new and expanded design team and are really excited about some of the ideas we have in place for the Sigerson Morrison and [the brand's diffusion line] Belle by Sigerson Morrison lines.” And while she wouldn’t discuss specific plans for the label, Itzkowitz said the company is looking at also adjusting price points.
Morrison and Sigerson founded the brand in 1991 and the duo's last collection under the Sigerson Morrison label will be the Fall 2011 line. Neither the designers nor Marc Fisher Footwear will discuss details of their departure.
