Marissa Webb is no longer Banana Republic's creative director
She will now be creative advisor of Banana Republic
Changes continue to rock the fashion world. Marissa Webb has stepped down from her role as creative director of Banana Republic and will now be creative advisor of the brand. Gap Inc., who owns Banana Republic, will not appoint a new creative director. Instead, its design team will work together on future collections.
Marissa has only held the creative director post for 18 months. Decreasing sales is said to be one of the factors that lead to this job shuffle. She said in a statement that this change "opens the door for even more possibilities for my own collection and Banana Republic."
"So many great things are happening at Banana Republic and at my Marissa Webb label and I am proud to be part of the growth and evolution of both brands," she added.
