Ossie Clark shutters its doors for a second time
There is sad news today coming out of the Ossie Clark London camp. After relaunching just two years ago, the label is closing its doors for a second time.
"Due to market conditions, developing the business has been challenging and
the decision has been made to cease trading," said a spokesperson.
In 2007, the iconic Sixties/Seventies brand was revived by Marc Worth, founder of WGSN, 11 years after Ossie Clark's tragic death. Worth appointed Avsh Alom Gur as head designer, and the label went on to show at London Fashion Week for three seasons.
After Gur resigned in March, the design reins were handed over to Nargess Gharani of Gharani Strok. Unfortunately we won't see the fruits of her labour.
It is the latest label to fall victim to the recession. On Tuesday, we reported that Escada is facing bankruptcy and could also soon cease trading.
