Footwear retailer Payless ShoeSource has signed a new multi-year agreement with fashion designer Lela Rose that will also see the launch of a new special occasion shoe collection.

As well as continuing to design her Lela Rose for Payless collection, the deal will include the new 'Unforgettable Moments by Lela Rose' line of dyeable shoes which is due out in early 2009.

This new range will include several core styles, as well as seasonal trends, which can be dyed in 64 colours hand-picked by the designer.

Payless first started working with Lela Rose in September 2006 with a seasonal line of footwear and accessory designs created in conjunction with Lela Rose's ready-to-wear clothing. The collection sells for under $40 an item.

The new agreements include four seasonal Lela Rose for Payless collections per year, and a line of infant and toddler shoes under the brand name Teeny Toes Lela Rose Collection.
