Jump Design Group recently bought Cathy Daniels. Cathy Daniels was founded in 1984 by Herbert L. Chestler and his two sons, Steve and Danny. Cathy Daniels’ focus is on sportswear fashion. Jump Apparel was founded by Glenn Schlossberg in 1990. Schlossberg began his love of fashion at a young age when he helped his father who was a dress maker. Glenn Schlossberg then went on to study at the prestigious New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Schlossberg has not lost his love for working with young talent in the fashion industry, and he has continued to mentor young entrepreneurs in a variety of ways.
The merger is a great way for both companies to expand their market share. Danny and Steve Chestler are happy that the partnership will still allow for the majority of the people who made Cathy Daniels such a success to remain with the company. Jump Design Group will take on the running of the new company under the leadership of Glenn Schlossberg, Ashesh Amin and Jerry Passaretti. Jump Design does not see this as a merger that will break up Cathy Daniels, but it is rather a way to keep the company intact while growing it. Check out cfda.com
Ashehsh Amin had previously worked with some of the biggest names in fashion including J.Crew, BCBG, Adrianna Papell and Bombay Shirt Company. They will also use Schlossberg’s 30 years of experience in the fashion business to move the company forward. They will use the latest technology in the world of fashion. As with other projects Jump Apparel is involved with, they will bring new technology to established companies that had not used this technology.
Jump Design Group will now integrate athleisure, sportswear, and denim into their fashion lines while still using their top designers and it will continue to bring high quality fashion to its customers. Visit his Facebook page.
