Emma Hope seeks white knight

Premium footwear brand Emma Hope is seeking a buyer following a restructuring of the business which resulted Emma Hope Shoes falling into administration.

However the Emma Hope Wholesale and Emma Retail companies continue to trade.

The footwear brand’s Italian manufacturers will ship wholesale orders direct to stockists under a temporary licensing agreement, which Emma Hope said would help to cut lead times. This agreement will be extended to handbags later this year.

Emma Hope herself, who set up her label in the early noughties after graduating from Cordwainers College, is said to be in talks with potential investors.

In addition to its international wholesale operation, the footwear brand has three stores in London, including one in the Westfield London shopping centre which recently opened.

The company said in a statement: “The Emma Hope stores are performing well and the core retail business has seen increased sales for the same period last year. The website has seen a similar strong growth year-on-year.”

London-based Shipleys is acting as administrator.
