Women’s apparel brand Ship 'n Shore on Monday revealed it has entered into licensing agreements with Prestige Global Co Ltd and Once Again to launch the brand's new moderate sportswear and denim collections for Fall 2003.

Pennsylvania-based SWC Enterprises Inc, which purchased the brand from Montgomery Ward in May, said in a statement that both collections will be available for delivery from next August.

President Joel Schwartz commented: "Prestige Global's unmatched sourcing and design capabilities allow the Ship 'n Shore sportswear collection to be competitively positioned in the marketplace for design and value, while Once Again's creativity and flexibility are ideally suited for the rapidly changing denim market.

"The new collections will provide our target 35 plus female customer with the updated merchandise concept that is proportioned to meet her body, her lifestyle and her pocketbook."
