NEW YORK — Katayone Adeli is shutting down, at least for now.
A spokeswoman for the designer confirmed that Adeli would close her six-year-old signature business and her Bond Street store, but could not provide further details on Wednesday. She said Adeli hopes to be able to restructure the business, but that it would not be possible for the designer to complete the orders she received for fall and that some of her staff was being let go this week.
