The Indian label has been suffering from financial troubles for years and is now facing legal action from vendors and employees alleging unpaid wages, according to a report by the New York Times.

Earlier this year, Arora parted ways with his long-time business partner Deepak Bhagwani, who told the NYT that the brand’s French holding company went into liquidation in July. 

Arora has been described as the “John Galliano of India” and  is one of the most highly recognised Indian fashion designers in the world. A former creative director at Paco Rabanne, he was one of the first Indian designers to make a splash at Paris Fashion Week. In the past he has collaborated with global brands including MAC Cosmetics, Reebok and Swatch.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BoF. Arora told the NYT via an October email that there was “acute disappointment among all parties,” but declined to comment “on what went wrong given we are in liquidation and also the matter is in court.”
