Wendy Bellissimo Partners with AD Sutton and Sons to Launch the Wendy Bellissimo Diaper Bag Line for New Moms
4/26/12- Wendy Bellissimo Media, Inc. and AD Sutton and Sons announced today a licensing partnership for Diaper Bags designed by Wendy Bellissimo. The diaper bags will be marketed across multiple tiers of Wendy Bellissimo and her related brands and will range in price points to accommodate the brand’s appeal, which spans from department stores and boutiques, to specialty and mass retailers. On the heels of Bellissimo signing multiple other licenses, AD Sutton will be able to take advantage of an exceptional amount of buzz and momentum around the brand, which is planned to launch nationally at retail in several key categories in 3rd Quarter 2012.
“Diaper Bags have always been such an exciting category for me to design,” says Bellissimo. “My approach has always been to look beyond the basic functions to create something that balances the needs of a mom with a true expression of style. My partnership with AD Sutton gives me all the resources to make that happen and I am so thrilled to be working with them.”
“We are proud to be partnering with Wendy Bellissimo on her new fashion diaper bag line,” says Pam Sinishtaj, President of AD Sutton’s baby division. “Our collaboration is off to a great start and our retail partners are looking forward to getting Wendy’s product back on the shelves!”
Richmond Management Group, Inc. (RMG), exclusive licensing agency for Wendy Bellissimo consumer products, brokered the deal.
