Hi FI, so nice to talk to you off OTR and it's difficult format! I just had to read this after you posted about it on OTR. In her case, I simply think she tried to move the Valentino customer to her aesthetic a bit too fast. Her color palette was far too muted to suit Valentino's style and it's customers. Perhaps given time it would have worked OR it would have gone the way of Givenchy after the reigns of Galliano and McQueen. Givenchy is still trying to rebuild it's lost customer bases from that era.

I feel bad about all these designers getting the boot after 5 minutes, but in this case I bet sales are the exclusive reason...a drastic plummet.
