Hed Kandi, the young fashion label owned by superclub Ministry of Sound, has done a volte-face and shut both its Bluewater and Liverpool One shopping centre stores, just six months after opening.
Hed Kandi opened its first store in Bluewater shopping centre in August, which was followed by a second UK store in Liverpool One in October.
At the time, Hed Kandi managing director Rose Foster said she planned to open five stores in city centre locations during 2011. The stores stocked the full range of Hed Kandi partywear, clothing and accessories.
Foster declined to comment on the store closures.
Hed Kandi clothing started life as a successful collaboration with Arcadia Group’s womenswear retailer Miss Selfridge in 2009.
It is unclear whether the name will continue to be used.
