Halston, we've got a problem. Tamara Mellon is the latest to leave the fashion house.

Another one bites the dust? 

After a week of high-profile departures—president and chief creative officer Sarah Jessica Parker, partial owner Harvey Weinstein, and creative director Marios Schwab—the house of Halston is said to be down one more.

Former Jimmy Choo owner Tamara Mellon, who has served on Halston’s board of directors since the brand’s relaunch in 2007, is no longer associated with the company, according to Vogue U.K.

Mellon and Weinstein were the sparks behind the revival of the iconic ‘70s brand, with Mellon bringing the deal to Weinstein’s attention in 2007. “Halston is one of the truly iconic brands of the last century,” she said at the time.

“I have long believed that the glamour, elegance and timeless modernity of the clothes he created are as relevant today as they were when he stood at the epicenter of the fashion world thirty years ago. I am excited to be part of a team that hopes to bring the brand back for a new generation.”

Although Hilco Consumer Capital, which co-owned Halston with The Weinstein Company, has yet to make a formal statement on the brand’s loss of marquee names, it is believed that Hilco is now the sole owner of the fashion house.

It will reportedly shutter the Halston label and focus instead on the contemporary line Halston Heritage.
