Doo-Ri Chung is leaving Doo.Ri

Doo-Ri Chung is parting ways with the fashion house she founded in 2001.

There is no explanation for her abrupt departure yet, but WWD reports that the Tharanco Group which owns Doo.Ri, "wishes Chung well in all her future endeavors."

Sounds a bit chilly and suspect if you ask us. The Korean-American designer is coming off a hot year first with a collection for Macy's Impulse line. The First Lady also wore one of Chung's gowns to a State Dinner last fall.

Chung, a Parson's graduate, was the 2006 award winner in the CFDA's up-and-coming designer category.
