Jerry Leigh Plans Mizrahi Girl's Line

Xcel Brands has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with clothing manufacturer Jerry Leigh for a line of girl’s apparel under the Isaac Mizrahi New York brand. 

Jerry Leigh will introduce the girl’s line at retail this fall.

“I am very excited to partner with Jerry Leigh to launch girl’s apparel in fall 2013,” says Robert D’Loren, chairman and chief executive officer, Xcel Brands. “We anticipate that we will execute additional licenses in the children’s category to fully complement our children’s collection. The Isaac Mizrahi brand brings an exciting point of view to children’s apparel and accessories.”

Xcel Brands acquired the Isaac Mizrahi New York brand in 2011, and has since expanded the fashion property into more than 100 categories.
