One of Britains most loved designers has been dropped by her main financial backers.
I was quite shocked to hear Luella Bartley declared herself as bankrupt today. Known for its idiosyncratic and humorous mix of punk details and party dresses, Luella is the label of choice for the streetwise British girl-about-town and is regularly worn by London gossip-page royalty Alexa Chung, Lily Allen and the Geldof sisters. The designer once described her look as "the kind of clothes you can get drunk and fall over in".
Lets just hope somebody throws enough cash at her to get her back in the game and her next collection pushed forward ...
