the trouble with marchesa

Marchesa >>  As Marchesa's red carpet-driven business continues to explode, the company seems to be experiencing a few growing pains.  Page Six is reporting that Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were both listed as "co-designers" of the label on Marchesa.com a week ago, "but the firm has now changed Craig's title to 'co-founder.'"  A source also says that at a recent Marchesa-sponsored event:

. . .  anyone who called Craig a designer was instructed to instead refer to her as co-founder.

Georgina's brother, Edward Chapman, Marchesa's chief executive, was backstage being very specific that Georgina is now to be called the designer of the company, but Keren is her co-founder, and not the designer. And boy, was that emphasized several times. The girls are absolutely the best of friends and work together without much confrontation, but it's very clear there's been some issue recently with who's who at the company.

Funny, because when I look at Marchesa.com, all I can find is Georgina and Keren both being referred to as co-founders.  I wonder if a change was made in response to this article, and if Page Six really has something . . .
