Another Casualty of the Downturn: Luella Bartley

Luella Bartley is the latest fashion casualty of the downturn which is a huge shame.

I thought Luella's collection for Spring/Summer 2010 is young, fresh and very Audrey Hepburn-ish.
Just right for the mood for the coming Spring season.

The company has stopped trading after losing its financial backing.
Last month, its ready-to-wear producer in Italy closed, resulting in the company being unable to fill its orders for Spring/Summer 2010.

Not being able to fulfil orders is a really BIG deal with fashion buyers as there is a domino effect on their retail sales.
