Hot Copy Industry Update

New York, NY - (Children's Business) - AWARD-WINNING BRITISH ACTRESS JANE SEYMOUR - best known for her turn as a Bond girl in the film "Live and Let Die," as well as her tarring role on the long-running television series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" - is busy tackling a different kind of role: fashion designer. Using her series of children's books as creative inspiration, Seymour has launched This One 'n That One, a children's apparel and accessories collection. Named after her eight-year-old twin sons, John and Kris (perpetually compared and referred to as "This One 'n That One"), the boys and girls' collection spans from newborn up to size 6X/7. The book series' cast of cat characters cameo throughout the collection in the form of surface prints, appliques and embroideries. The Saks Department Store Group (SDSG) - whose stores includes Parisian, Profitt's, Carson Pirie Scott, Younkers and McRae's - has scored exclusive rights to the collection and will roll it out to 125 stores this Back-to-School season. This One 'n That One follows on the heels of the recent premiere of Seymour's elegant St. Catherine's Court Home Collection of home furnishings and accessories, also exclusive to SDSG.
