January 8, 2008,
New York -- Fashion powerhouse Liz Claiborne, which has been shedding brands, said that as a result of its latest strategic review it has decided to close down the Sigrid Olsen designer brand business, which it owns.
In spring 2006, the Sigrid Olsen Organic Art bedding ensemble by W-C Designs was voted the winner in the Best Modern Living Design category, by participants in the HTT TiA Awards.
As part of the discontinuation of the brand, Liz Claiborne will shutter the 54 Sigrid Olsen stores by mid-2008, the company said.
