Megan Gale Calls It Quits on Isola After Announcing She's Parted Ways With Seafolly
If you're a fan of the eponymous beachwear brand Isola by Megan Gale, then you'd better make a beeline for the nearest swimwear store, and quick, following this sudden statement by Megan Gale, the brand's Creative Director and namesake.
Yesterday, the supermodel announced her split from Seafolly, telling the Financial Review, "After 6 successful, wonderful seasons together partnering with Seafolly we have decided to part ways. The brand has had amazing growth in sales and awareness year on year and stocked in 100 stores nationally so you may ask 'why the hell would you stop?!' We were limited in growing Isola overseas, mainly the US and Seafolly's focus now is more global. I will now retain full ownership over the brand. I'm resting the brand for at least a season which seems like the smartest thing I can do, while I consider my options – whether to run the business myself or partner with someone new."
"It's a super exciting time now and an interesting option has already presented itself to me however I really want to take the time to make the right choice. I have to sincerely and wholeheartedly thank each and every one of my stockists & all the incredible women who have supported the brand the past 6 years. Without all of you the success of Isola would not have been possible. Much love to you all and .... Watch this space!"
While the future of Isola by Megan Gale is still ebbing and flowing Megan went on to say: "Just so all of you #isolabymegangale lovers start panicking that it's off shelves already, fear not my lovelies!! You can still purchase the sensational current 2015 collection until the end of summer. In my opinion this is the best and hottest collection since the brand started in 2010. Enjoy."
In celebration of the stellar swimwear line, let's take a peek at the brand's most celeb-worthy moments . . .
