A $ 50 million asset brand was saved from collapse just weeks after the company announced it would go into administration.

Stylerunner, founded in 2012 by Australian twins Julie and Sali Stevanja, was released on Tuesday for an & # 39; undisclosed amount & # 39; sold to Accent Group Limited.

The sisters, both of whom are 38, announced that their company was going into administration on October 23 – one year after they claimed the company made $ 50 million annually.

The sale was welcomed by customers who were assured that gift vouchers and orders will be honored.

Andrew McCabe from Wexted Advisors and Chris MacDonnell from Restructuring Solutions, were looking for a buyer for the problem and are satisfied with the result.

& # 39; Customers will be relieved that the brand has been saved – the director (Julie Stevanja) is still on board and will continue to lead her team, & # 39; Mr McCabe said news.com.au.

& # 39; … so it will continue as usual, but now with the support of a listed company with deeper portfolios. & # 39;
