Home and fashion brand Laura Ashley Australia in administration

Classic British home furnishing and fashion brand Laura Ashley Australia has called in the administrators amid talk of store closures after trading through several difficult seasons.

The Laura Ashley business in Australia and New Zealand is run under a licence agreement with Laura Ashley UK.

The sole director of Laura Ashley Australia, Daryl Chait, appointed Ross Blakeley, Quentin Olde and John Park of FTI Consulting to administer the company on Thursday.
