Xcel Brands has announced the opening of a new Isaac Mizrahi New York store in Woodstock, Ga. This is the second Isaac Mizrahi New York store to open in the Atlanta area, and the new shop encompasses 2,000 square feet with offered products including apparel, fragrance, footwear, handbags, eyewear, and timepieces. A grand opening party for the shop, which will open in early March, is planned for March 29.

"It's important to offer our consumers the complete Isaac Mizrahi New York experience in the theatre of our own stores," said Xcel Brands, Inc. Chairman and CEO Robert D'Loren. "We plan to launch our e-commerce site and open additional stores in 2014."

A leader in the fashion industry for almost three decades, Isaac Mizrahi has, since his first collection in 1987, created designs that stand for timeless, cosmopolitan style. He has received four CFDA awards, including a special award in 1996 for the pioneering documentary "Unzipped." He recently launched the Isaac Mizrahi New York collection at better retailers throughout the United States. In December 2009, Mizrahi launched ISAACMIZRAHILIVE!, his exclusive style collection on QVC. Additionally, television audiences have come to value his media presence through roles on shows like "Project Runway All Stars" for the Lifetime network, "The Fashion Show" for Bravo and his own series on Oxygen and the Style Network.

Xcel Brands, Inc. is engaged in acquiring, designing, licensing, and marketing consumer brands, utilizing an OMNICHANNEL sales strategy that includes interactive media, digital, and brick-and-mortar retail. The company acquired designer apparel brand Isaac Mizrahi New York in 2011 as well as an interest in Liz Claiborne New York, quickly expanding into more than 100 categories for the Isaac Mizrahi brand.
