Dannii said in a statement, “In March 2010, I teamed up with Tabitha Somerset Webb to launch the fashion label Project D. Over the past three years we have launched a clothing line, a fragrance and a watch collection. I have no decided to step down from the brand and will no longer to associated with Project D London moving forward.
“I have loved being part of PDL and am proud of what we have achieved. I wish Tabitha all the best with her business and would like to thank every person who supported us in this project.
“I am currently enjoying being part of Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model, and am looking forward to The Australian X Factor starting soon.”
In May it was revealed that Project D was se to cease trading, but it was thought that Dannii had plans for Project D in the future.
As well as her numerous working commitments, busy Dannii is also a devoted mum to her son Ethan. She split from the two-year-old’s father Kris Smith in April 2012, but recently said they make it work.
Speaking to the Sun about being a single mum, Dannii said, “I’ve got friends who planned that and they love it. But I wouldn’t have ever done it.
“I’m still waiting for Ethan to say, ‘Dad let’s me do it’, about something.
“My neighbor is a single mum with a 14-year-old. He’s so well-adjusted and polite. He even said to me, ‘Don’t worry, you’ll be fine.’ And it is fine.
“There’s a sadness but I don’t worry about being a single mum because I known I’m very capable. Ethan’s got grandparents in the UK and in Australia so it’s cool.
“Kris is a good dad with him — that’s all you can strive for, to be good parents.”
