Scottish lingerie independent Boudiche has been acquired by Scottish knitwear designer Belinda Dickson for an undisclosed amount.
The indie, which fell in to administration in June, will be relaunched in Glasgow with a fashion show at the recently refurbished Corinthian Club’s pop-up store, The Boutique, on Thursday, according to reports in the Scottish press. The Boudiche website will also be relaunched.
Dickson, chief executive of BJD Design and owner of cashmere label Belinda Robertson, told the Scotsman newspaper that it was too soon to set out longer term plans for Boudiche.
Boudiche, which was founded by Clare Thommen and Fiona McLean in 2005, hit the buffers in June and made 13 staff redundant after it was unable to secure funding for future growth after sales slumped during the recession and footfall fell at its Edinburgh store on Frederick Street due to nearby building works. Thommen and McLean failed to buy back the business.
Dickson added that the brand had a good image and that the founders had created a “great deal of goodwill with the quality of the product and service offered”.
She added that she would consider opening a designer outlet at BJD Design’s Cashmere Barn in East Lothian.
