“It is a great joy to return to Las Vegas, where our company, and partners, enjoy such extraordinary success because of the home industry. We are grateful for the tremendous support we receive from retailers, partners, and the visitors of this wonderful place,” said Kathy Ireland, CEO and Chief Designer of Kathy Ireland® Worldwide and Chairman Emeritus and Chief Brand Strategist of Level Brands (NYSE: LEVB). Ireland arrived at the Las Vegas Furniture Market, the largest furniture, home decor and gift wholesale market in the West.
Ireland and her team of executives landed in Las Vegas, where she spent two days highlighting her successful partnerships in the furniture and home industries, with Michael Amini, Bush Furniture, Pacific Coast Lighting and Nourison. Featured events included the new Michael Amini | Kathy Ireland® Home Designs furniture collection as well as KATHLEEN MARIE NEW YORK, a luxury collaboration with Nourison experiencing great success at Neiman Marcus and Horchow.
