Modern Amusement Closing Headquarters and Ceasing Operations
Posted on February 6, 2010WWD reports that the Modern Amusement fashion brand ceased operations last week. WWD says Nicole Castrogiovanni, vice president of sales at Modern Amusement, informed retailers in an email, "With regret, I am writing to inform you that Modern Amusement has ceased operations effective immediately. In light of prior management disputes, it is a difficult but necessary choice. Unfortunately, this is all the information we can provide at this time and we are unable to elaborate on all the details. This is deeply troubling for myself, Mossimo and the entire Modern Amusement family."
Modern Amusement's headquarters in Costa Mesa, California will be closed and spring apparel to any of the retailers that carry the brand, including Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. The company has not updated its Twitter account, @followthecrow, since last December. ApparelNews.net also has a story about Modern Amusement ceasing operations.
