London Fashion Week brand Ronit Zilkha's sole licensee has gone into administration.
David Rubin & Partners has been appointed as administrator of the licensee, Tight Finish.
"The company was unable to generate sufficient turnover to meet fixed costs," said David Rubin & Partner administrator Andrew Spring.
Ronit Zilkha launched in 1991 and in the mid-1990s was one of LFW's more successful designer labels.
But it collapsed in 2005, and was rescued by Howard Moher, managing director of branded supplier Cavden Group, and Jonathan Mocton, finance director of footwear wholesaler NLG. The pair created Tight Finish, to run the label's stores and concessions under licence.
The brand is owned by Ezri Investments, which is based in the British Virgin Islands and is unaffected by the administration. It is unclear who the directors of Ezri Investments are.
Spring said he was hopeful of selling the business. He said the stock was worth £400,000, but that the licensing structure could complicate the sale.
