It seems like just yesterday that Millie Mackintosh was launching her own fashion brand, Millie Mackintosh Fashion, but sadly the clothing line’s time has come to an end.
A devastated Millie took to social media last night to explain that she would indeed be closing down the line.
"As someone who has always been passionate about fashion, I realise I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to build my own fashion business over the past four years,
"So, it is with great sadness that I have had to make the very tough decision to close it. Despite our best efforts and being a top seller with a number of our stockists, the financial climate in the fashion industry has proved immensely challenging and the business is no longer sustainable. The unwavering support from friends, family, influencers, the industry and customers has made this decision even harder,
"I want to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank everyone who has been involved, especially my immediate team whom it's been a privilege to work with."
Fans were quick to offer their condolences, expressing their love for the brand.
Immediately, reports began circulating that the closure is due to money issues and that she's set to lose some of her own personal fortunes in order to bail the brand out.
The Standard reported that the company owes creditors £548,000, with Millie potentially losing £178,000 from the company collapse, although this is currently unconfirmed.
Millie's line was sold in a number of high street stores, as well as on ASOS and Very. It's a sad day for fans of the brand.
