Department store, Debenhams, is expanding its stable of designers, including a new bridal collection by top lingerie designer, Janet Reger.

The store already has around 26 designers on its books, and this number will expand further in the New Year when several new ones are added to the list.

A spokeswoman for Debenhams said: "We are in talks with leading designers all the time."

Jasper Conran, who has worked with Debenhams since 1998 producing fashion and homeware ranges, launches an exciting lingerie range - J by Jasper Conran. It includes microfibre bras, thongs and high leg briefs with a branded metallic gold `J' logo on each piece.

Reger by Janet Reger bridal collection includes bras, suspenders, basques and garters plus sleepwear with beads and sequins.

Menswear designer, Ozwald Boeteng, is another new name to the list. OZ by Ozwald Boeteng casual separates will include a Harrington jacket as well as trousers and shirts. All three new ranges will be launched in February at Debenhams.

Other more recent launches include Edina Ronay Maternity and Edina Ronay footwear.
