Lisa Kulson Steps Down From Theory

Lisa Kulson has resigned as women’s creative director of Theory, a post she has held since February 2014, WWD has learned.
Kulson joined Theory in 1997 as head designer and left in 2002 to create her own namesake line. She returned to Theory in 2012 as a consultant, and assumed her current role two years later. She took over responsibilities following the departure of Olivier Theyskens, who had been the brand’s artistic director.
Theory said Kulson is leaving to pursue other creative projects.
Known for her modern women’s collections, Kulson’s style has always reflected her love of travel and luxury, attention to details and technical skills.
Andrew Rosen, Theory’s chief executive officer and founder, expressed his “sincere gratitude and respect to Lisa for her commitment to the company and its evolution into a leading force in the marketplace. She is a true talent, and has a great eye. Lisa and I have worked closely together for many years, and she will always be a part of the Theory family.”
Rosen began working with Kulson when Theory launched its second collection. Asked to describe her aesthetic, he said she designs clothing with a modern sensibility. “She’s great with fits and fabrics and has a great eye stylistically.
