Dear customers, manufacturers and friends of Debonair

Dear customers, manufacturers and friends,

Debonair is a small, passionate and ambitious company that has worked hard to establish itself on the online fashion scene for the last two years. We’ve met our fair share of challenges in this time, ranging from a worldwide pandemic, finding the right people and brands to start off with, as well as various internal difficulties.

We are incredibly proud of the business we’ve built to promote the wonderful brands and products that we’ve had the honour and privilege to work with. We spared no expense to ensure that our website as well as our handling of customers and suppliers was the absolute highest we could provide. Over the time that the website was live, we’ve had some truly amazing experiences, praise, and feedback.

Sadly, due to the events of the last 18 months relating to the pandemic as well as fundamental changes in the management and running of Debonair, we have decided to cease trading from today. Although the website will be live for a couple more weeks, no one will be able to buy from Debonair. The reason for the closure of Debonair has been a lack of sustainable growth, constantly increasing running costs as well as a severe decrease in the amount of manpower available to operate and grow the business.

Over the last month we’ve tried to find a buyer for the business. We were looking for serious offers that would value what had been created and develop a sustainable plan for Debonair, whilst including the suppliers we’d brought onto the website. Sadly, we didn’t receive any offers that were good enough to seriously consider. Because of this, we have no other choice but to close Debonair.

We would like to thank all the customers, manufacturers, freelancers and other friends that have been part of the Debonair journey. It has been an incredible experience that both founders will keep in their minds and hearts for as long as they live. We would also like to give a personal thanks to all the brands that decided to work with us for the time that we were active. Your vote of confidence was an important milestone in the achievements the business had.

Thank you very much for the last two years, and stay classy.
