Dita Von Teese has signed a global licensing agreement with Australia’s Lime Door Brands to produce, market and distribute the first collection of lingerie and bras and undies bearing the Dita Von Teese name.
The agreement also involves the queen of burlesque and the brand development firm becoming co-owners of other brands and product categories, including a line of dresses. Distribution kicks off later this year in Australia, followed by expansion in the U.K. and other international markets in 2012.
