NEW YORK — Tibi has signed a licensing agreement with the Japanese Marubeni Fashion Planning Corp., which in turn signed a sublicense agreement with Itokin Co. Ltd. to produce and distribute the Tibi brand in Japan. The agreements, which cover clothing, handbags and jewelry, stand to more than double Tibi’s total volume.
Owner and designer Amy Smilovic will retain creative control of the collection. Itokin also has licensing deals with Cynthia Rowley, Ashleigh Verrier and James Coviello.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
