Zoe no go: Saks drops Rachel’s fashion line

Stylist to the stars and rookie designer sees former buzz fizzle.

Rachel Zoe has dressed lots of hot celebs in her time and used that success to springboard a potential fashion empire, designing clothing and accessory lines for outlets as varied as TV shopping channels and high-end department stores. And while these ventures launched with tons of buzz, much of their hype is fading as sales disappoint.

Buzzfeed reports  that mega high-end retailer Saks Fifth Avenue is just the latest to drop Zoe’s clothes from their stores (although for now they’ll still be available online), following British retailer Selfridges deep sixing last fall, and the New York Post reports that her line “isn’t doing well at Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.” The good news? Her Bravo show is back for its 5th season and a sitcom based on her life has been greenlit.

There will always be a few nuts who like her clothes, but that's it.  They aren't "designed" and I use that word loosely - for the average buyer out there...they are for those self-loving, 70s and 80s valley hippy-dippy girls who don't have a care in the world and who live off of Daddy's money.  I agree, she should stick to styling for the self-absorbed so called celebrities she has dressed for years.  They are the ones who need her help. Not us.  And god-bless those celebrities who want to look as weird as she usually does.

She can't design; she does 60's & 70's knock-offs. She should stick with her successes and keep her fingers out of the real designers' pie.
