Sienna and Savannah Miller Leave Twenty8Twelve Label
The sister team were at the helm of the label for six years and were the main designers of the label’s collections. They originally launched the company in conjunction with Pepe Jeans and Spanish entrepreneur Carlos Ortega, but the reason behind the sister’s leaving has not been fully revealed, leading many to speculate that it is to do with Sienna’s pregnancy and her wanting to concentrate on being a mother.
WWD.com revealed the news first, quoting the sister’s as saying; “We’ve had a brilliant six years at Twenty8Twelve and are now looking forward to new pastures,” the Miller sisters said in a statement. “We wish the brand the best of luck for the future.”
Despite Sienna and Savannah leaving the label, it will continue as ‘Twenty8Twelve London’ instead of the original ‘Twenty8Twelve by s. miller’ name. They will also be showing their new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection at the forthcoming London Fashion Week by designers Vanessa James and Elsa Elphick who were a part of the original design team alongside the sisters.
