"Libby Edelman is the latest collection to showcase this new strategy as we move toward meeting customer demand for more trendy, casual fashion."

The Libby Edelman brand will encompass an eclectic mix of free-spirited looks offering modern pieces influenced by seasonal trends.

The Libby Edelman collection is ideal for every woman who has this similar desire," said Libby Edelman.
