It’s been a crazy year for Sass & Bide. It was just over 11 months ago that the brand’s co-founders, Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke, left their prestigious label, and now their replacement design director, Anthony Cuthbertson, has also jumped ship.
Sydney Confidential reports that Cuthbertson resigned from the role last month to join his partner back in the UK, and will be replaced by Witchery design manager, Therese Rawsthorne. She is relocating from Melbourne to Sydney to work from the label’s Rosebery head office next month.
Vogue Australia‘s editor-in-chief, Edwina McCann, thinks Rawsthorne is the perfect fit for Sass & Bide. “I think Therese is an excellent choice to take Sass & Bide to the next phase and her design aesthetic is well-suited to the brand,” she told Sydney Confidential.
We definitely hope so. Sass & Bide needs some luck, and stability.
