So what's up?
As fans of The Rachel Zoe Project can attest, Goreski, 33, kept things upbeat no matter what kind of curveball Zoe threw his way. At least until now. While he says he has no beef with his now ex-boss, he tells People that he simply need to "spread his wings and soar."
"I love Rachel and she's taught me everything I know," he told the magazine.
Goreski, who was just profiled as a style icon and Zoe's assistant in a glowing New York Times piece, reportedly informed Zoe over a month ago of his plans to style celebrities on his own. That may explain why we spotted Zoe front row at the Oscar de la Renta show during New York Fashion Week this month, while Goreski was banished to the back row.
They didn't speak to each other on the way out, but earlier that week Goreski gushed to us that working for Zoe was "crazy, fun and lovely."
Zoe did tell People that her underling quit with "such class and elegance."
To his credit, Goreski was a famous fixture on his own during Fashion Week, even when he wasn't by Zoe's side.
"Life has changed," Goreski told E! News about being a part of Zoe's camp and being on her show. "A lot of people come up to me and say hi now, that's the biggest change."
The duo will officially go their separate ways Oct. 1. Sounds like this situation is playing out better than the Zoe's drama with disgruntled ex-assistant Taylor Jacobson. That was just ba-na-nas.
