Rapidly-growing designer of high-end women's wear, Andrew Urbain Inc, on Wednesday revealed it had agreed a deal with Atlanta-based sales agency Michelle Harrison & Associates to expand its sales outreach to the southern US market.

The New York-based company has handed responsibility for developing the Andrew Urbain collection across the following states: Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia, West Virginia, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.

Earlier this month the company signed a similar agreement with Dallas-based sales agency Lori Veith to expand its sales outreach to Texas and surrounding states.

Commenting on the latest deal, Andrew Urbain managing director, Michel Deschodt, said: “We have always believed that our clothing was particularly well suited for the south, and we have wanted to establish a presence there with a highly reputable sales agency. As we conclude our agreement with Michelle Harrison, we are doing just that."
