"Our company has evolved into one of the largest specialty women’s omni-channel and digitally enabled retailers with a powerful multi-brand lifestyle platform poised for growth. RTW reflects our vision to maximise the power of our platform to create destination celebrity and lifestyle brand assortments across categories and channels.

We are excited about our future and ability to continue to drive value creation for all RTW shareholders," Greg Scott, chief executive officer, said.

The company’s portfolio includes New York & Company, Fashion to Figure, and branded merchandise, including collaborations with Eva Mendes, Gabrielle Union and Kate Hudson.
