Following the belated announcement—which was secreted in a throwaway line in her Vogue cover feature—that Sarah Jessica Parker is no longer working at Halston, WWD speculates today that Harvey Weinstein, the brand's owner, is ready to call it quits as well. WWD reports: "As reported in April, Hilco was looking for additional investment or to potentially sell Halston. According to one source, there were at least three bidders for the company including Max Azria, but Halston is now said to be pursuing a licensing model instead. The departure of Parker and Weinstein—both high-profile personalities with no experience in running a fashion licensing business—could clear the path for this." [WWD]
