Allen B. Schwartz, co-owner, founder and design director of A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz, has pulled the plug on his Allen B. collection for J.C. Penney Co. Inc. after five years at the beleaguered retailer.
Allen B., which started out as a sportswear collection but morphed into a dress line, was carried at 908 Penney’s stores. Schwartz said he designed, fit and sourced the collection, which was manufactured by Penney’s. The deal was under a royalty license.
