Three NGC Customers Named Winners of Apparel All-Star Awards

Apparel Magazine Selects Maggy London, Michael Stars, and Russell Athletic as 2007 All-Star Award Winners

NGC® (New Generation Computing®) today announced that three of its customers – Maggy London, Michael Stars and Russell Athletic – have been named winners of Apparel Magazine’s 2007 All-Star awards. Each year, Apparel Magazine honors ten outstanding apparel businesses based on their innovation, excellence in management, track record of growth, and corporate goodwill that reflects positively on the industry. The All-Star winners were selected by the editorial staff based on nominations from industry executives, and each will be profiled in the December issue of the magazine.

Apparel Magazine will formally recognize the winners during the opening session of Apparel’s 2007 Tech Conference today at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. The ceremony will also name the 2007 Grand All-Star, chosen from one of the ten winners.

Maggy London was selected for the award based on the overall growth and success of their various apparel brands, including Maggy London, London Times, Donna Morgan, Ali Ro, Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique, Muse and Shani. Maggy London is in the process of implementing NGC’s e-PLM software for product lifecycle management and this will further enhance their ability to grow in the future. “NGC has and will continue to help us become more efficient in our business processes. We are honored to be acknowledged for our hard work and achievement over the past year,” said Jerry Sholtz, Corporate Senior Vice President, Finance and Administration at Maggy London. Maggy London has also implemented NGC’s e-SPS® software for global sourcing and RedHorse® software for apparel ERP.

Michael Stars was selected for Apparel’s All-Star Award for its incredible growth, including expansion into retail, and its innovative and unique approach to style and sizing, among other things.

Russell Athletic was chosen as an All-Star for its emphasis on continually improving apparel performance and comfort, its aggressive branding initiatives targeted toward the youth market, and for the many ways in which it contributes to the community.

“NGC congratulates each of these deserving companies who have been recognized as the ‘best of the best’ in the apparel industry,” said Alan Brooks, president, NGC. “We appreciate their leadership and innovation, and it is an honor to be associated with them. We wish Maggy London, Michael Stars and Russell Athletic continued success in the coming months and years.”
