Gemmon claims it had agreed to sell only Wang-branded merchandise, including Wang’s Ready to Wear clothing collection and Rosy Blue accessories, reported the ‘NY Daily News’.
Sources close to the matter said earlier this week that Vera Wang Bridal House Ltd. will blame it on Gemmon LLC’s mismanagement.
In 2005, Gemmon signed a five-year agreement to sell Wang designs at a new shop in Honolulu’s high-end Halekulani Hotel.
Years later, Gemmon has complained that its ability to operate as an exclusive Wang retailer in Hawaii was compromised when Wang devalued the worth of its own brand by entering into an agreement with Kohl’s department store to exclusively sell “Simply Vera,” an accessories line with lower prices.
Responding to these complains, the bridal wear firm contends that a retailer suing the design firm had a store manager with little experience.
