An update on the ongoing back-and-forth lawsuit between Kitson and Majestic Mills, the company that manufactures Nicole Richie's clothing line, Winter Kate: "In documents filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Kitson argues that Majestic Mills’ failure to secure Richie for an appearance at a launch party for Winter Kate clothes and House of Harlow 1960 shoes deprived the retailer of profits in excess of $500,000. Kitson also asserts it was forced to take markdowns on Winter Kate goods when the brand was provided to competitors at cheaper prices. Majestic Mills previously filed a lawsuit against Kitson for failing to pay for $240,000 of merchandise the store ordered. [WWD, previously]
