Snooki: From Jersey Shore to Beverly Hills

Snooki says these sunglasses block the sun and haters.
Hey LA fashion watchers—add Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi to your list of West Coast designers.
The pint-sized scene stealer from MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & Jwoww” is gearing up to launch her Snooki Couture by Nicole Polizzi brand through a partnership with Beverly Hills-based brand licensing agent Robert Thorne and his associate Sherwin Ross.
Think Snooki Couture activewear, sportswear, sleepwear, underwear, outerwear, swimwear, headwear, handbags, footwear, small leather goods and more, according to Thorne and Ross.

There’s already Snooki Couture by Nicole Polizzi brand fragrance, sunglasses and slippers and lipsticks. Snooki nail products, jewelry, hair accessories and headphones are in work.
Last year, Polizzi’s Snooki-brand products sold out on HSN and come Nov. 7, she’s returning to the home shopping network for another two-hour special.

Snooki says wearing these slippers is like walking on a cloud.
“Everyone knows me as a girl who loves fashion, everything about fashion, and I’ve been building my brand starting with beauty products and certain accessories I feel great about,” Polizzi said, in a company release. “ I want to introduce fashion that women will love and can afford and I’m going to spend a lot of time in designing my apparel and accessories to be cute, well made and something we girls can feel great wearing. You can bet you’ll see me wearing everything I design.”

Ami Sanzuri Apparel - Ready to provide great fall clothes during the August show

Ami Sanzuri Apparel, an OFFPRICE Show exhibitor for the past three shows, offers men's, women's and children's apparel.

Based out of Los Angeles, the relationships the company has carved out with key contacts overseas are outstanding, allowing them to consistently provide great values throughout their entire line of products. In fact, they even operate two warehouses in LA.

Ami Sanzuri is one of the only companies that imports a container of factory cancellations into Los Angeles each week and consistently offers new and exciting items to resellers and retailers, always below manufacturers' costs.

Through their partnership with the OFFPRICE Show they are extending their business into retail stores both large and small.

“In this crazy, tough economy where people are struggling to put gas in their tanks and food on the table, we know in our hearts that we are making a difference by providing beautiful, well constructed jackets, bottoms, tops and accessories, affordable to the critical mass discount supply chain,” said Ace Ross, sales and marketing director of Ami Sanzuri. “Our first OFFPRICE show in February 2010 was outstanding; we reached a whole new arena of boutiques and chain stores.”

They are introducing a full line of women’s and children’s dresses at the upcoming show in August that they are showcasing for Spring 2012.

Private Label Production and Apparel Progams

Many customers call to inquire about private label apparel. In our factory cancellation business we always put our label on existing garments (private labeling commodity garments) while others want to have their own "private label" sewn in during manufacturing. We will provide either service. For customers who want products that are not commonly found due to shape, structure or fabric type we offer a full package custom apparel and sweater manufacturing to customer specifications with private labeling, marketing and packaging. Custom apparel and sweater manufacturing is typically more creative and rewarding.

When there are large volumes and replenishment programs it is beneficial to work with a well capitalized company with outstanding manufacturing partners who own Wal Mart and JC Penney approved factories. We will finance all costs of developing specs, sourcing the fabrics and making the samples. We deliver!

Our 45 years in branded production experience does provide a value added opportunity for your business to reach the mass market with a competitively priced original designed garment.

Communication, outstanding quality, on time deliveries, and financing are all a part of what makes our team outstanding in the world market place.

Cotton prices keep rising!

A recent announcement from India states that the 5.5million bales allocated for export for all of 2011 have been booked and registered in the first 10 days of release. Heavy booking from China subsequent to the Chinese holidays combined with domestic demand are forcing prices ever higher. Current cotton pricing is nearing $1.20 a pound (bear in mind that a year ago it was at $.55 a pound). Fears in India are of limited to no availability of cotton fiber for their domestic market in the first quarter. This bodes poorly for our market, as exported fiber and yarns from the major producing countries are diverted to their own markets or bid up in the Asian market. Forecasts for domestic pricing are an additional increase of 20-30% by January. We have experienced increases of nearly 10% in just the past three weeks!

Conversations with many knowledgeable business leaders indicate the first quarter of 2011 will bring us delayed deliveries and shortfalls. Availability will be an issue. We strongly urge our customers to consider bulking up inventories by December to avoid any dramatic delays. We realize this will mean additional investment , but better to have the goods on the floor than to be unable to meet deliveries. Anticipate an additional 3-4 weeks of lead time for orders placed on custom goods after January, and plan accordingly.

Serving a bigger purpose than self in business.

"We must dare to think "unthinkable" thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world."
– James William Fulbright

Gas prices will hit 4 to 5 dollars a gallon...cotton prices are at an all time high and will keep rising.....How will the people that are unemployed, upside down on their homes, struggling to put food on their tables actually be able to afford the rising costs of goods and freight services?

Someone must help bring affordable, outstanding apparel to these people. Affordable clothing......this is my outcome....if we can bring affordable apparel, not cheaply made apparel, to the mass market that the buyers can buy for less than the costs of manufacturing the goods themselves..isn't that a compelling enough reason to get involved? Why would you not want to at least see what we are offering. If my purpose is to serve a bigger purpose than self in business by dressing thousands of people with well constructed, great fitting, outstanding fabrics and trendy fashion, at a cost to the retailer lower than the costs to manufacture these goods...and passing the savings forward to a people who are struggling...well then, I surely can not be too presumptuous. This February, I am representing a company at The Off Price Show in Las Vegas whose purpose is just that!

I wish to create the possibility of reaching out to buyers that may have never entertained the thought of visiting The Off Price Show to please make time in their schedule at Magic to visit our Salon 2933 at the Sands Convention Center. The show is outstanding, The Sands Convention Center is perfect, come have lunch, the food is great! Walk around, there is so much to offer from factories and jobbers from all over the world....."Be the change you wish to see." Off Price will change how the world dresses....Dare to think unthinkable thoughts in a changing world.
