The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Christopher Kane Leaves Versus, Macy’s ‘Dump Trump’ Protests Are Happening Today, and Walmart Workers Plan Walkout on Black Friday
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• Well, well what do we have here? The folks at Versace sister label Versus have announced they are ousting Christopher Kane. Curiously, this is announced just after Kane’s people denied the designer’s ascent to the Balenciaga throne, recently made empty by the departure of one Nicholas Ghesquière. Versus is experiencing a complete branding overhaul, moving to produce seasonless collections with a focus on capsule and branding collaborations. Of course, Kane leaves with no hard feelings: “I am so grateful to Donatella Versace for her support and the incredible opportunities she has given me,” he told WWD. “I respect her enormously and have learned so much from her…I am excited about the new Versus strategy, but the time has come to dedicate all my focus to the future of the Christopher Kane label.” (WWD)

• Angelo Carusone‘s “Dump Trump” campaign has taken off in such a big way, Carusone says he might have to turn away protesters today at Macy’s at 12:30pm, for fear of clogging up the already-overcrowded Herald Square: “I’m worried that I’m going to have to tell people not to come because the response so far has been very, very strong,” he told The Cut, “I got hundreds of RSVPs, and I can’t have an event like that … that many people in New York City. So, what I’m going to have to do is limit it to the people who have credit cards … at my last count, I had 26 people who confirmed that they had credit cards and could attend, and ten who had credit cards, but didn’t know if they’d have the time on Tuesday, but still wanted me to send the notice when I set the location.” Alas, I will be in front of a computer, enjoying a Dean & Deluca soup safely away from the crowds as the protest rages. Any Fashion Bombers planning to attend? (The Cut)

• The US has found an unlikely ally in the fight against counterfeiting. WWD reports China, teamed up with the US to bust a bust a counterfeiting ring operating in the Southern Guangdong province. 37 cells manufacturing bootleg Louis Vuitton, Hermès, and Coach bags were shut down, which altogether were part of an $802 million dollar operation.

Paris Hilton is opening a store in Saudi Arabia’s Mecca Mall. The socialite and perfumier will peddle her wares (not those ones, guys,) from a brand new standalone shop boasting ‘affordable luxury fashion products.’ like ‘perfumes, handbags, watches and footwear.’ (Daily Mail)

WalMart employees across the country are planning to stage walkouts in protest of having to work on Black Friday sales starting on Thanksgiving Day. Since last week, the groups Our Wal-Mart and Making Change at Wal-Mart have vowed to execute over 1,000 strikes and other public displays of discontent up until Black Friday. WalMart is hitting back with a suit against against the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, claiming these protests are “unlawful attempts to disrupt… business,” which is almost as disruptful as having to leave your family Thanksgiving dinner early to stock shelves so people can buy their Christmas presents on one of the few days off they’ll have before December 25th.

    Like the fake bag! Betcha could DIY one…Now I have to look up Dump Trump. I am completely on board with the Wal-Mart walk out. I WILL NOT be shopping on Thanksgiving. I think none of us should in silent protest.

    One, Donald Trump is the ultimate douche bag. I would buy his ties to sh%t on. Two, Wal-Mart is evil. All the big executives who made the decision to open the stores on Thanksgiving Day will be at home with their families stuffing their gready faces. I don’t do Black Fridays.
