The Talbots, Inc announced that Mr. Michael Smaldone, Chief Creative Officer, has departed the Company, effective immediately.

Trudy F. Sullivan, Talbots President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "While we have made progress in executing our brand vision and product design, customer acceptance needs to improve. Therefore, I have determined it is necessary for us to bring in new creative leadership.

The creative process is a team effort, and we are confident in the ability of our strong bench of experienced and talented designers and merchants to continue to move forward during this transition period. We believe the action we have taken will enable us to strengthen the execution of our brand and merchandise initiatives going forward."

The Company has an active search for a replacement underway. Ms. Sullivan will assume the chief creative responsibilities while the search is completed. During the transition, the Company's Senior Vice President of Design will report directly to Ms. Sullivan.

As previously announced, Talbots will host a conference call today September 7, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. local time to discuss second quarter 2011 results. Details regarding the call are included in the second quarter results release.
