Georgina Goodman goes into administration
Here's some sad news for lovers of stylish and original British footwear: Drapers broke the news today that Georgina Goodman's eponymous label has been put into administration, after instructing restructuring firm Hilco to sell the company on. Details of why the label got into financial difficulty have yet to emerge.
At this stage, all that is known is that a buyer is in the process of acquiring the business and that it will cease trading in its current form shortly. The e-commerce site and Shepherd's Bush branch have already closed down.
Georgina Goodman, who designed the famous 'love' and 'kiss' shoes and whose stripy soles have become recognisable the world over, has created some of our favourite high end shoes of recent years. We wish her all the best in working through this difficult time, and hope to see her styles gracing the shop shelves again very soon.
