This week, in a report released by The Daily Beast, it was revealed that the Kardashian sisters of E!’s Keeping up with the Kardashians were three of the highest paid reality TV stars this year, but it seems that next year may not prove as profitable for Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney, with news that their fashion empire isn’t doing too well.
After just one year, Bebe is reportedly thinking about dropping the Kardashian sisters’ clothing line.
“The sisters do still have relevance. We need to move with the fashion and we want to be first in the fashion world with everybody else and not fall behind,” Bebe president Emilia Fabricant told WWD. “We are definitely assessing the situation.”
The Kardashian sisters’ recently opened Dash boutique in New York City also received a horrible review in the New York Times Critical Shopper column.
“Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drippy cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers. … Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot air balloon,” wrote Times columnist Jon Caramanica, who compared the Dash boutique to a theme park with nothing “worth carrying away but memories.”
Yikes! It’s hard to believe that anyone–even the Kardashian sisters–could survive that one.
And this isn’t the first business blow that the women have had to weather this year. Just a few weeks ago, they sought to end their ties with a prepaid MasterCard that they had previously endorsed due to criticism from those in the financial industry over the cards’ outrageously high fees and the fact that it targeted teens and young adults trying to “keep up with the Kardashians.”
Well, if things don’t work out with the Dash boutiques, the Kardashian sisters have quite a few things to fall back on.
