After first introducing their product at last Augusts Magic, several key licensees of BETTY & VERONICA have set the spring and fall roll-outs for their licensed apparel and accessory lines. The product lines stem from agreements with the BETTY & VERONICA licensees and the propertys licensing representatives Archie Comics Ent. Inc. and Miramax Films. Representing Archie Comics Ent. and Miramax Films in negotiating the agreements was Los Angeles-based licensing agency Brand Central Llc.
The theme of the initial BETTY & VERONICA licensing program is: Are You a Betty or Are You a Veronica? Betty represents the popular girl next door, while Veronica is more glamorous and sophisticated.
