Los Angeles, California - Richmond Management Group has signed children's apparel and family interiors designer Wendy Bellissimo to its client list.
Bellissimo has designed nurseries, homes and furniture for a multitude of celebrities including Brooke Shields, Kelly Ripa, and Denise Richards and is also the author of Nesting-Lifetsyle inspirations for your growing family.
RMG will be representing Wendy Bellissimo Media in the re-launch of a number of brands under the Wendy Bellissimo trademark including the well-known "Wendy Bellissimo Baby and Kids" brand along with new lifestyle brands.
RMG will be announcing their first licensing partners for infant and children's bedding, apparel and accessories in the next few weeks. These new licensees will be developing lines to launch for fall 2012, and RMG said to expect the traditional Wendy Bellissimo style along with her fashion forward sensibilities.
"We are thrilled to be working with Wendy Bellissimo," said Jennifer Richmond, managing director of RMG. "As longtime fans, we are delighted that Wendy has put her confidence in us to deliver her design sensibilities to the public. Through a myriad of efforts, we plan to bring Wendy's warmth and creativity to the hearts of the consumer and connect all those who love quality, comfort and sophisticated style."
Richmond Management Group said it plans to take Bellissimo's brand to new levels through corroborations and innovative licensing partnerships that will bring the Wendy Bellissimo product into a multitude of categories and retail outlets. Bellissimo will continue to develop her product lines in tandem with the signed licensees and maintain her hands-on approach with each line.
RMG also has further plans to expand the WB brand beyond baby and kids.
"I am immensely excited at opening this new chapter in my career," said Bellissimo. "Over the years, I have been blessed with success in the high-end specialty market, then in direct-to-retail and now, with RMG's partnership, will be taking my vision to a new level across a diverse range of categories and market tiers. I have always been working towards a global lifestyle brand and now, with these initial key licensees in place, and more to come, we are now officially on our way! I am beyond thrilled as is my family."
