Kimberly Ovitz Taking a Break from Ready-To-Wear

Kimberly Ovitz is taking a time-out from designing looks for her own line and won’t produce a fall collection. “We are in the process of exploring new opportunities for the label and will not be fulfilling orders for the fall line at this time. We will be working on a number of collaborations and initiatives, including a new collection with Shapeways, which we hope to roll out soon,” said Ovitz in a statement. The designer sold pieces from her collection to Saks Fifth Avenue, Shopbop, Owen, Curve, Madison, and Elyse Walker. The looks were also available at kimberlyovitz.com.

According to WWD, she will likely return to designing her own RTW looks in a season or two. Ovitz’s website will remain active and she will continue to sell her jewelry. Ovitz is negotiating several partnerships for a makeup line and handbag collection in the near future.
