Michelle Ochs files suit against former collaborators Cushnie

Michelle Ochs — who exited her hip fashion brand Cushnie et Ochs in 2018 — filed suit Tuesday in federal court in New York’s Southern District against the renamed Cushnie brand.

She claimed the company failed to pay her part of a settlement she’s owed, and breached a “non-disclosure and settlement agreement and a promissory note” that would give her installments of $180,000. According to the suit, first reported by the Fashion Law, Ochs’ second-to-last payment should’ve been paid by March 12, but she never received it.

When an arbitration scheduled for April didn’t happen, Ochs claims she was “left with no choice but to commence this action seeking monetary damages … believed to be in excess of $360,000.” Ochs helped found the brand in 2008 with Carly Cushnie.

The company did not get back to us.
