Rachel Roy who just debuted her fall collection for NYFW last month will not be produced, what should be a celebration of being in the game for 10 years is now bitter sweet. The company that produces her clother “Jones Company”  has discontinued Rachel Roy Collection, a rep for Jones Group confirmed to us Tuesday morning. A source says the collection was not in line with Jones’s overall strategy.

Jones is being sold Jones, which is currently being sold to Sycamore Partners, has held a 50 percent stake in Rachel Roy’s business since 2008. It will “continue to support” contemporary label Rachel Rachel Roy, which is sold exclusively Fashionista.com.

This may not be the very end of Rachel Roy Collection, which was sold in doors like Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Saks. There were reports just last month that brand management firm Bluestar Alliance had been looking to acquire Rachel Roy. Roy told WWD that she plans to produce the collection somehow herself. A rep for Roy could not immediately be reached for comment.

  1. OMG!!! When eye break out, eye hope this NEVER happens to me. Ya gotta stay on top of the new new and be ahead to the new new, #sorryforher

  2. Damn – Shit is real in the field! Sorry to hear that for real – Damn MB be havin the juice – I just really wish her the best moving forward – she has some great pieces in her collection, or should I say former collection!

  3. Aww! Damn! I purchase her clothing from Macys all the time! Her clothes fit me perfect! Hope she keeps designing clothes for retail because her fabric feel like 100% cotton. Isn’t Damien Dash (her ex) behind her RR line?

  4. Maintaining a fashion line can be a struggle I see. I read that Katie Holmes ended her 4 year old fashion line. And last year Justin Timberlake discontinued his William Rast clothing line. As for Rachel Roy, she recently relocated from NYC back to California. She said it was better for raising her daughters and more affordable than NYC.
