Party Time: Vince Is Set For IPO
Fashion brand Vince, (“VNCE” on New York Stock Exchange ticker), celebrated its Initial Public Offering that occurred in November at the Top Of the Standard Hotel and Le Bain. Guests danced all night to tunes spun by DJ Chelsea Leyland and snapped pics at the Bosco photo booth while tasting veuve cliquot and Whiskey Smash. The fête was a kick off to New York Fashion Week as attendees included Alyssa Milano, Daisy Fuentes, editors and retailers, along with Marc Leder, co-chief executive officer of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. and Jill Granoff, Chief Executive Officer of Vince. “Our entire team looks forward to this new and exciting chapter in the brand’s evolution”, noted Granoff, “we intend to continue to build upon Vince’s reputation as a leader in contemporary fashion by capitalizing on our strong customer loyalty, growing our customer base and introducing new and compelling product assortments and categories.” Vince currently carries women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and will unveil men’s footwear and childrenswear this year. Handbags and small accessories are scheduled to launch in 2015.
