London Fashion House to design 8000inc clothing lines
Feb '10
In line with recent announcements, 8000inc (EIGH.pk) has teamed up with an exclusive London Fashion House to design, develop and produce the first two 8000inc clothing lines.

Negotiations are underway with a worldwide distributor, with stores bidding for exclusive rights to sell this exciting new collection of aspirational clothing, sportswear and accessories from the 8000inc brand.

The first 8000inc clothing line has been commissioned and designed exclusively for the Amateur Athletics Association of Barbados for the Athletes (AAAB) and their support team attending the Carifta Games in April 2010. With exposure from the national team, support staff and fans, demand for the AAAB shirt between now and the World Junior Games in August is estimated at 15,000 units, generating revenue of over $600,000USD for 8000inc in the first three months of trading alone.

The expanded 8000inc clothing range includes shirts, T shirts, polo shirts and accessories ranging from head wear to golfing attire, all bearing the exclusive 8000inc brand. This exciting launch will focus on the high end fashion market and includes the 8000Red(C) for men, the 8000Pink(C) for women and the elite collection, 8000Black(C). The product line will be available for direct worldwide distribution and sale through the imminent launch of the 8000inc online boutique and select associate sites, as well as the Flagship store in Barbados.

Thomas Kelly, CEO 8000inc stated, "The opportunity presented to us was too good to ignore. Our first challenge was to create the imagery and design for the AAAB travelling to the Carifta games in April. From that simple concept and opportunity, the doors opened for us to design an exclusive clothing range. The London team are doing a fantastic job turning this around and their design ideas are cutting edge. But the most important thing to the 8000inc brand is, from day one, 8000inc, its clothes, its people and the name will be worn and seen across the globe at international events from day one. That is as significant an opportunity as I have never experienced and everyone involved is grabbing hold of this initiative."
