Former ‘Made in Chelsea’ star Millie Mackintosh has closed her fashion label amid the looming “financial crisis.”
The 28-year-old started the business four years ago and as well as having her own website, her clothes were sold on ASOS. With 1.3m Instagram followers Millie regularly used her social media platform to showcase collections.
However, even some fans were quick to point out that Millie’s designs were priced too high at €350 a pop compared to other retailers on ASOS who priced similar designs at €80.
Millie thanked everyone who’s been involved, saying she’s been “incredibly fortunate” to be able to create her own fashion business.
Meanwhile Victoria Beckham’s sister has closed her own affordable fashion boutique Hidden Closet in Hertfordshire. Louise said she closed down the business as she is “too busy with her four children” and struggled to find a third party to take over running the shop.
While older sister Victoria’s label, where prices tip €3000 for a dress, won Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, Louise’s brand has now closed completely. The Hidden Closet Facebook page is now urging customers to “use vouchers and credit notes ASAP.”
