>> Snap up all your favorite pieces at Topshop, there could be trouble in paradise. Jane Shepherdson, the director widely credited with turning Topshop into a brand the Kate Mosses of the world will proudly wear, is threatening to quit, ironically, because of Kate Moss.
Ms. Shepherdson seems less than happy with the decision to hire Kate as a designer -- doesn't feel that she was properly consulted.
It's too bad that if this shakeup does go through, it will affect all of us Americans who will be getting Topshop (online and on land) just as the good goes away.
EDIT: It is now confirmed that Jane Shepherdson has quit her position as brand director at Topshop. Sir Philip Green, owner of Topshop's parent company Arcadia, is denying that Ms. Shepherdson's decision had anything to do with Kate. "She was in on all the discussions," he said.
