Tailored clothing maker Bagir has signed its first licensing agreement with American fashion designer Nicole Miller to market three of Miller's lines, including women's tailored clothes.

The agreement is for three and a half years with the further option of a three-year extension, and covers the designer's signature Nicole Miller Collection and its exclusive line Nicole by Nicole Miller for JC Penney.

Established in 1961, Bagir is known for its innovative merchandise, including an award-winning machine washable suit which it developed for Marks & Spencer.

Earlier this month it was announced that Nicole Miller has teamed with barenecessities.com to sell Nicole Miller Signature lingerie for spring.
