The Gap Fires Chief Designer

Gap needs to realize they need to stop selling low quality crap.

I used to shop there but stopped as the prices went up and the quality went down.

It’s typical of the new American Fashion Business Paradigm:  Make poor quality junk and sell it at designer prices….during a recession.

Somehow, I don’t think the designer is totally to blame….

From the Guardian:

For the best part of two decades, it was almost impossible to walk down any street without seeing a Gap logo hoodie or baseball cap. The logo was a powerful symbol of the strength of the US fashion store, which dominated the high street with its simple, clean-cut, college style.

But the brand has fallen out of favour, and with sales dropping at an alarming rate, Gap has admitted that the decline had reached crisis point and announced the immediate dismissal of its chief designer, Patrick Robinson.
