Also, as part of the new contract, Bendet will design girl's shoes under the alice + olivia for Payless brand, which will be available beginning spring 2009.

Bendet joins Lela Rose, Abaete designer Laura Poretzky, and style icon Patricia Field as guest designers for Payless select fashion designers and stylists who create designer footwear and accessory collections for Payless featuring the latest runway and red carpet styling details.

Typical pricing for the Payless designer lines are under $40 a pair. Payless' designer collections are among the most broadly distributed designer footwear lines available in the United States.

"We are excited to continue to bring women across America and now little girls Stacey's fun and flirty designs in the popular and well- selling alice + olivia for Payless label," said LuAnn Via, president and chief executive officer for Payless ShoeSource.

"Stacey's original designs have been very successful for us, and we look forward to seeing her continued creativity and strong understanding of footwear and accessory trends introduced at New York Fashion Week next week, and then later available to shoppers in our stores."

alice + olivia for Payless spring 2009 women's collection will be unveiled at the alice + olivia presentation a week from at New York Fashion Week.

The collection will later launch in select Payless stores and Payless.com in spring 2009 with a summer collection to follow.

"I am proud to partner with Payless on my first-ever footwear label and to extend our relationship to cover the spring and summer 2009 seasons," said Stacey Bendet Eisner.

"alice + olivia for Payless is designed to coordinate with the alice + olivia ready-to-wear collection, and I can't wait to unveil the full spring collection at Fashion Week.

It's always a thrill to see the creative shoe designs at Fashion Week and then in stores the instore styles are near-exact to the runway shoes I design. Payless does an amazing job."

To introduce its spring '09 designer lines, Payless will be at New York Fashion Week with all three designers Laura Poretzky at the Abaete show, Lela Rose at the Lela Rose show and Stacey Bendet at the alice + Olivia presentation.

Each collection will be unique and reflective of each designer's signature style: Poretzky's "American international," Rose's strong focus on "classic with a twist" and Bendet's "contemporary retro."
