Kathy Ireland, the worldwide brand that got its start in socks over two decades ago, is back in the game. The brand signed an exclusive deal with KISS Legwear Group Inc. to manufacture Kathy Ireland Legwear for Spring ’16.
Kathy Ireland was named the 31st most powerful brand by License Global Magazine. Kathy Ireland Worldwide launched with a $50,000 loan and a desire to design the best socks in the market. That early success in socks led the company to expand into fashion, household products and beauty goods. According to Forbes Magazine, it is a $2.5 billion annual grossing company.
