Is Jon Gosselin to Blame for Ed Hardy's Downfall?

During the height of Ed Hardy popularity, shoppers would have to wait outside the popular flagship store in Los Angeles on a red carpet while celebrities tried on the tattoo-adorned clothing, and only a handful of people were allowed in at a time. Over the years, the red carpet disappeared and the exclusive store turned into an outlet, but today even the outlet is gone and there is almost zero demand for anything Ed Hardy.

Designer Christian Audigier recently revealed that he blames the failure of his company on reality star Jon Gosselin stating, "That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin. That's what tanked it...."

If you recall, back in 2009, the recently divorced Gosselin was photographed wearing Ed Hardy apparel of some sort almost every day and it's true that as his popularity with the public fell, so did the brand.

What do you think? Was it a coincidence or is Jon Gosselin really to blame for Ed Hardy's downfall?

    I haven't even noticed Jon wearing Ed Hardy until now.Christian Audigier should own up to his lack of talent instead of blaming other people.

    Jon Gosselin has nothing t do with this. My nieces were rabid Ed Hardy fans, but now tell me they are tired of Ed Hardy..." It's the same-same-same styles, it's kind of for kids, Ed Hardy is for 12 year olds now--that's who is buying it." Looks like the cute little skulls have had their 30 min. of fame.

    Jon may have been the last straw, but it was going down before him. It was the way for tools to be identified in a crowd. No wonder him and Kate are not married.

    I have never heard of Jon Gosselin, but when your product is geared almost exclusively to douchebags it's pretty much bound to fail.

    The final nail in the coffin will be Ed Hardy not knowing what a FAD is and trying to blame someone else.

    The problem was that Ed Hardy was popular with people like Jon Gosselin everywhere. So, it's not just Jon Gosselin on TV that was the problem, but that every time you saw their clothes they were on a Jon Gosselin type.

    The owners of the Ed Hardy label are solely to blame. Company owners blaming Gosselin for their failure is ridiculous.

    Fads come and go. Get over it, christian audigier. If I remember correctly, he was thrilled when gosselin started wearing his crappy looking crap.

    Don't get me wrong; I like calaveras art, and I can also appreciate tattoo inspired art...

    But most of that crap was just cliched and tacky as hell.
