Mr. Jones comes to Frederick's with more than 35 years of experience in the fashion and consumer product retail industry. Throughout his career, he has held executive and managerial positions with leading retail organizations, including Gap Inc., Target Corporation, IKEA, Filene's and Macy's.

Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Jones was the CEO of POGAN Retail, LLC, which he founded in 2003. In that role, he provided strategic counsel to several retail companies, including Liz Claiborne Inc., which he advised on the migration of its outlet division to a specialty store strategy.

During Mr. Jones' tenure, he was instrumental in growing retail store sales. Additionally, Mr. Jones led the rollout of Gap Body and was a member of the Planning and Distribution Strategy committees.

Mr. Jones is also a frequent lecturer and speaker on the subject of small business, retail and consumer products, and is a contributor to CNBC.

"This is truly an exciting time to be a part of Frederick's of Hollywood, as we look to continue the positive momentum we have built and expand that progress into our retail stores," stated Thomas Lynch, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The addition of Don Jones to our executive management team is another critical step toward returning Frederick's of Hollywood to profitability.

"With his extensive experience in driving innovation and impressive track record for creating outstanding results, Mr. Jones is a valuable addition to our team as we revitalize our brand on an international scale. Most importantly, his in-depth knowledge of the intimate apparel and related products industry, including developing these divisions of major department stores as well as the rollout of Gap Body, will bring the fresh perspective we believe is essential to our future success," concluded Mr. Lynch.

"Frederick's of Hollywood is a historic brand that pioneered a lot of exciting and innovative merchandise. Over the past two years, the Company has significantly strengthened its financial position and streamlined its operations. I believe the Company is now properly positioned to focus on aggressively regaining market share," commented Mr. Jones.

"Having followed the Frederick's of Hollywood brand for many years, I am excited to be in a position to offer my knowledge and experiences in order to help the Company effectively capitalize on the growth opportunities that exist both domestically and abroad."

A description of the terms of Mr. Jones' employment agreement with the Company will be contained in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc., through its subsidiaries, sells women's intimate apparel, swimwear and related products under its proprietary Frederick's of Hollywood brand through 123 specialty retail stores, a world-famous catalog and an online shop at website.
