According to the Cut, Patrick Robinson has been dismissed from his job as executive Vice President of Gap Global Design for Adult and Body.
The designer, who trained at Giorgio Armani, Anne Klein, Perry Ellis, and Paco Rabanne, began his career at the San Francisco based mass retailer in 2007. In the past three months Gap executives have been evaluating his performance–in the end they decided it was time for him to go.
Gap released a statement this morning, saying, “Patrick has been a dedicated and passionate advocate for Gap brand and our customers over the last four years, and we’re grateful for his hard work, especially related to our 1969 denim…Our leaders of the new Gap Global Creative Center are taking the necessary steps to compete and win around the world.”
Best of luck to Patrick! We’re sure he’ll land back on his feet very soon.
