The next fashion designer to get the ax could be Stefano Pilati, who replaced Tom Ford at Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche.
"Paris has been flooded with rumors that Pilati's position is under threat and that headhunters have been actively interviewing potential replacements," Godfrey Deeny reports on Fashion Wire Daily. But Deeny noted the "triumphant" YSL show on Monday drew "tumultuous applause."
A source told , "Apparently the house is tired of his antics, like blowing off reporters, partying too hard and making clothes that no one wants to buy, and they have decided to sack him. The buzz is that the front-runner to replace him is Olivier Theyskens, who somehow keeps failing upwards -- he drove Nina Ricci near financial ruin with clothes that photograph dramatically but no one can actually wear."
A spokesman for YSL in Paris said the rumors are "not true.", fashion wire daily
