It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

I caught up on the Iconix Brand Group, Inc.'s second quarter conference call, which had some interesting detail about Op's launch in Wal-Mart.


Op suitThe brand has done so well at Wal-Mart, it it being rolled out to more stores domestically next year. Currently, Op is in 1,000 doors.

Iconix is still waiting to hear how many doors the full collection will go to, but it does know that Op swimwear and flipflops will go in all doors.

Internationally, Op launched successfully in Canada this year and will go to all Wal-Mart doors there in the spring. Op is also launching in Mexico in 2009.

Next on the horizon is expanding Op in Walmart's in Brazil, China, India, the UK and Japan, Iconix executives said.
