Brides without dresses fight on

Bride © Getty Bride Brides in New Zealand and Australia are continuing to fight to get their money or their frocks back after a bridal company went bust.

Angela Lawson is among brides without a wedding dress after Primrose & Finch, which had branches in Auckland and Melbourne, went bust.

"I have paid thousands for my wedding gown at the Melbourne store - our wedding is in four weeks time and the dress is still sitting in a roll of fabric with the designer who has stopped producing for P&F because they owe them thousands," Ms Lawson writes on a Facebook page set up by annoyed brides.

She has paid $A4700 ($NZ4959) and "I am now a bride with no dress", she writes.

Bryan Williams of BWA Insolvency was appointed as liquidator of Primrose & Finch Ltd on July 28, according to New Zealand Companies Office records.

About 39 brides are believed to be without dresses because of the company collapse.

Designer Claire Pettibone has apologised to clients and says she has terminated her relationship "with this stockist".

A supporter of the owners of the collapsed company writes their bank accounts were hacked and they lost their business because of this.
