A French judge is tomorrow (Friday) expected to rule on a battle between the famous seamstresses at Yves Saint Laurent and billionaire Francois Pinault in a row over the couture atelier's future. Pinault's holding company Artemis wants the Paris court to quash an earlier ruling in favour of YSL's works council made after Artemis took steps to sue it over allegations it was purposely delaying giving a decision on the sale to French fashion giant SLPB.
