Stitch Ministry, the knitwear label created by the half of Insidious Fix who was not convicted of cultivating and selling cannabis, has announced its departure from this world. An email sent out yesterday cited the economic climate as the primary reason for the shuttering, stating, "the market has become increasingly tough in the extreme." Diann Waugh of Waughs, a Dunedin based stockist of the brand, said yesterday that she had not been informed of the label's closure despite having ordered its Winter 2011 collection. "[It's] bad form not to let your retailers know... [But] that's the fashion industry at the moment, it is bloody hard for all out there, designers, retailers etc. If it was not a passion I think we would all give up." According to the press release, owners Kylee Davis and Jason Gitmans are in the process of communicating with stakeholders right now. RIP Stitch Ministry.
I LIKE YOU!
