Escada America Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy – WWD

Escada America LLC filed for bankruptcy in Los Angeles on Tuesday, marking the latest leg in the brand’s financial struggles.

Initial filings in federal bankruptcy court gave only the tiniest details about the department’s situation. The company estimates it owes between $1 million and $10 million out of a total of 100 to 199 creditors. It also lists assets between $1 million and $10 million.

Many of a business’s biggest debt is rent and is listed in dispute. The top three creditors are all due on rent and include the 717 GFC in New York, owed $5.1 million; Beverly Hills Wilshire hotel, $2.5 million, and Samson Management Corp. in Queens, $1.3 million.

Mittal family sells more widely Escada business for the Beverly Hills-based private equity firm Regent in late 2019.

But the acquisition quickly fell to the worst of the pandemic, bringing major disruption to fashion and a wave of bankruptcies.

Escada America’s attorneys and Regent’s representatives could not be reached immediately on Tuesday.
