Geren Ford's label has shuttered. In its place are three digital platforms—GerenFord.com, BornPacked.com and TheArtBrat.com—where fans can follow the LA-based designer's diverse range of interests. Ford on the decision: "The marketplace is so different from the one I entered into. By putting the brand into a time capsule of sorts, there is always the possibility that it can come back to life in a market more suited to where I wanted to take it. I felt that there was more opportunity working to engineer new brands in this wonderful post-recession tech boom." [Fashionista]
