The sudden departure of Yiqing Yin from Poiret caught many by surprise. She was hired this year in Feburary to revive the iconic house Poiret after its 90 years of hibernation.

Its revival collection to show during Paris Fashion Week for AW18 was highly anticipated and reasonably well received, though did not deliver any 'it' pieces.
