Moss falling out of fashion fast

Burberry has become the third fashion label to end its association with supermodel Kate Moss.

The British company said a campaign scheduled for autumn had been cancelled by mutual consent in the wake of drug allegations.

Burberry said it was "saddened by her current circumstances" and wished Moss well.

In a statement a spokeswoman for the firm said: "Since last week we have been in discussions with Kate Moss's representatives. Kate has worked successfully with Burberry on a number of assignments over the years. However, we have never had a contract with Kate, or any other model, to be the 'face' of Burberry.

"At the current time we had one project scheduled with Kate for this autumn and in the circumstances both Kate and Burberry have mutually agreed that it is inappropriate to go ahead.

"Kate has always been a fantastic model and highly professional for Burberry. We are saddened by her current circumstances and hope she overcomes her problems as soon as possible. We wish Kate all the best."

Moss has worked for Burberry since 1998 and has appeared in nine out of its past 16 campaigns.

The decision comes hours after Chanel announced it would not be renewing the model's contract to be the face of its Coco Mademoiselle perfume.

Yesterday Swedish fashion giant H&M said it was dropping Moss from a planned advertising campaign because of the drug allegations.
