+ Former creative director of Gap, Patrick Robinson, has left his position at A|X Armani Exchange. Despite gossip that he left due to plagiarism issues, a representative assured Page Six that Robinson left the brand amicably.

Patrick Robinson Ecstatic Over Hosting Met Gala

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Shows, News,

Patrick RobinsonPatrick Robinson is “honored” to be co-hosting next year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala.

The creative director of Gap, who will be presiding over the fashion event alongside Oprah Winfrey, is particularly taken with the event’s theme, “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.”

“Gap is honored to be invited by The Met to participate—supporting art and culture has always been at the heart of the brand. We are excited by the theme as this feels like a really natural fit—hopefully in our 40 years we have done just this by delivering versatile American style. I love that this exhibition speaks to how the American woman is multi-dimensional—she’s about high fashion, and she’s about everyday fashion. Which is why I’m thrilled Oprah is our co-chair for the Gala benefit as she epitomizes this versatility and has played such a significant part in shaping everything about today’s woman.”

Patrick is equally as thrilled with the way Gap’s latest collection has been received. He explained that the Pierre Hardy boots, T-shirts with silk pockets, and denim gilets are so popular the company has had to start a waiting list. Gap employees can’t get enough of the slim-fitting chinos, boyfriend shirts, and pea coats.

“Look out for our new take on the classic Gap gray sweatshirt—which I predict will be the essential easy luxe piece for 2010.”
