Frank Usher opened for business in 1946 in London. The company’s specialty was bringing high end details and fresh off the runway inspirations at a more moderate price range, emulating such designers as Ossie Clark, and often incorporating high end details such as elaborate embroidery.
More recently, the company went into receivership in 2001, was sold to management, and was then purchased by the Simma Corporation. The Usher warehouse and distribution plant was moved from London to Stoke to streamline operations. Currently, the company produces four different collections of evening wear and versatile separates: Frank Usher, Dusk, Coterie, and Bridal.
