NEW YORK, United States — Marchesa's Keren Craig has left the company she co-founded with Georgina Chapman.

"While I have made the difficult decision to part ways with Marchesa, I have tremendous pride in the company, the team, and the many successes achieved,” she said in a statement. “I am excited to now begin exploring additional creative opportunities and to push my potential as a designer in new directions."

Craig had explored looking for a job as early as 2014, BoF has learned. She did not immediately respond to BoF requests for comment.

Craig and Chapman launched the eveningwear label in 2004 and became a mainstay on the red carpet. Since allegations of sexual assault against Chapman's then-husband Harvey Weinstein came to light in October 2018, the label has faced difficulties as the Daily Beast uncovered ties between the brand and Weinstein, red carpet appearances shrunk and it cancelled its New York Fashion Week show.
