Tony Power, founder of underwear brand Panache, has been left in a serious condition after being attacked in Sheffield last Monday.
Power, who established Panache Lingerie in 1982, was hit over the head in a park in Sheffield last week leaving him with a fractured skull and a bleed on the brain. He is now in a serious condition in hospital.
A statement from Panache said: “Mr Power is a self-made man who founded international brand Panache over 30 years ago and which now employs over 120 people locally. As a close, family run company, this incident has come as a big shock to the business and our thoughts and prayers are with the Power family at this difficult and private time.”
Although Power is now retired, the brand continues to be a family-owned business, with Power’s son John serving as chairman and managing director of the company.
