Fashion entrepreneur Richard Caring, described as a "Rag-trade baron", is set to buy the Signature chain of restaurants including The Ivy, for £21m. Caring's £200m fortune comes from supplying BHS and Topshop with mid-range fashions made in Third World factories. They are the sort of clothes "rarely seen in The Ivy, in Le Caprice or in any other restaurants belonging to the chain". The Independent on Sunday 05/06/05 page 3 The Sunday Telegraph 05/06/05 page 2
