De Lisi is also closing down his flagship store on Elizabeth Street. However, he will continue to produce his BDL by Ben de Lisi collection for Debenhams.

"This is a very exciting time for me, as I have decided that I would like to take life a bit easier and concentrate on the very many other aspects of the Ben de Lisi brand," he told Vogue.

He will now focus on his expanding interior design business, as well as painting and sculpting for a one-man art show.
