Relaunched Ossie Clark Label Closes

>> The fate of Escada is still unknown, but it's not so for Ossie Clark. The iconic label known for its flowing printed dresses in the sixties and seventies announced its closure today.

The recently relaunched label was purchased by Marc Worth, founder of online industry resource WGSN, in 2007 and restarted under the direction of little-known designer Avsh Alom Gur at London Fashion Week in February 2008. Gur resigned in March to focus on his eponymous line and was replaced by Nargess Gharani, one half of London label Gharani Strok.

As for the official company line on the closure, a spokesman relayed: "Due to market conditions, developing the business has been challenging and the decision has been made to cease trading."
