Aurora owed £42k by Lily Allen's clothing line

Lucy in Disguise, the clothing line set up by singer Lily Allen, owes $68,000 (£42,237) to Aurora Fashions’ Hong Kong-based supply arm.

The vintage-inspired fashion collection Lucy in Disguise was set up by Allen and her half-sister Sarah Owen in 2011, which was dissolved last month.

The High Court granted a compulsory winding up order following on from an application from Oasis and Warehouse owner Aurora Fashions, as its Hong Kong sourcing office is owed £12,000. Aurora confirmed to Drapers the brand has debts of £42,237 outstanding.

Allen and Owen also set up a shop of the same name in 2010 offering designer vintage clothing both for sale and for rent. The store and its launch was a subject of Channel 4 documentary - called Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags. However Allen severed her ties with the company in 2011, leaving Owen in charge of the business, which is still trading.

Allen has been back in the limelight recently as she has sung the soundtrack to John Lewis’ much anticipated Christmas advert.

Lucy in Disguise did not respond to requests for comment.

  • Finding this article fascinating. My factory used to supply Oasis until it went into administration.
    He couldn't understand how the business was bought back, owned by the same people and his stock sitting in the shops when he visited me, yet he was out of pocket by over £100,000.

    What goes around comes around.
