For the fourth quarter of 2018, total revenue was $42.7 million, a 18% decline as compared to $52.3 million in the prior year quarter. For the full year 2018, total revenue was $187.7 million, a 17% decline as compared to $225.8 million in the full year 2017. Such decline was expected, principally as a result of the transition of our Danskin, OP and Mossimo direct to retail licenses in our Womens segment, as previously announced. Our revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 and the full year 2018 were also impacted by the effect of the Sears bankruptcy on our Joe Boxer & Bongo brands in Womens and the Cannon brand in Home. Our Mens segment revenue increased 38% in the fourth quarter of 2018 as compared to the prior year quarter primarily from the Umbro, Ecko and Buffalo brands although the Mens segment declined 2% for 2018 mostly as a result of the transition of the Starter brand from Walmart to Amazon. Our International segment grew for both the quarter and the year primarily based on the performance of our brands in China, Europe and India.
