Stitch Ministry closes, according to statement

Filed by Lucire staff/December 20, 2010/8.51

Stitch Ministry, the label founded by Kylee Davis, formerly of Insidious Fix, and Jason Gitmans, has announced that it will close.
   A statement issued by the company was released this evening, stating, ‘While the relationship has been a successful one, the market has become increasingly tough in the extreme. Reluctantly Kylee and Jason have agreed to close the business.
   ‘The company will communicate with stakeholders directly within the month on how Stitch Ministry will cease business.’
   The company was renowned for its stylish, edgy knitwear.
   Davis is an award-winning designer whose first label, Insidious Fix, was founded in the wake of a win with design partner Jason Crawford at the 1995 Benson & Hedges Fashion Awards.
   Stitch Ministry was formed soon after Insidious Fix closed. In 2005, there had been allegations of drug cultivation in one of its properties, which saw Crawford charged. Davis quickly started fresh with Gitmans, who ran the family-owned Gitmans Knitwear, in 2006.
