ESL Investments Inc. is hoping to set the record straight — and do damage control — regarding its transactions connected to Sears Holdings Corp.
Attorneys for ESL have filed their “preliminary” response to the motion by the Unsecured Creditors Committee on Tuesday seeking expedited discovery in the Sears bankruptcy case. The court document said that response was filed to “promptly correct the record with respect to the various unfounded allegations raised against ESL” by the Committee’s motion. It called the allegations in the motion “baseless” and “completely divorced from the facts.” Furthermore, the court document stated that “ESL’s actions have always been taken in good faith, on fair terms, alongside third parties, regularly reviewed by independent and experienced advisers, and beneficial to all Sears stakeholders.”

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for customers, friends, family — and herself — for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
