SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Vandor, LLC, an industry leader in the design and marketing of licensed consumer goods, has acquired the license to manufacture products featuring Audrey Hepburn. Vandor signed a joint agreement with Paramount Pictures and Audrey Hepburn's estate to obtain the license, which has only been made available to a small group of manufacturers.
The award-winning actress and fashion icon is remembered for her beauty, style and grace. She appeals to women of all generations and has endured as a role model for young women around the world. Ms. Hepburn's likeness will be featured on many high quality products designed for everyday use. These include ceramic mugs and glass stemware; tin totes, boxes, signs and clocks; and a variety of stationery items ranging from notebooks and card sets to sticky notes and diaries. Other best-selling gift items will include eco-friendly shopper totes, playing cards, and accessories such as compact mirrors.
The Audrey Hepburn line will be available beginning in January 2011. The products will feature Ms. Hepburn in some of her most memorable roles: as a high fashion party girl in Breakfast at Tiffany's, a royal princess in Roman Holiday and a shy intellectual turned into a model in Funny Face.
"We're pleased that the guardians of Ms. Hepburn's image trust us to portray her on products that will further enhance her appeal," said Stacey Dobkins, Vandor's Vice President, Licensing & Marketing. "This latest license enables us to continually provide our customers with unique, high quality items that consumers desire," Dobkins added.
This year, Vandor has introduced just under 150 new products as part of its 2010 line, which is available by calling 1-800-755-5966 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All of Vandor's new products will be on display at major gift markets and industry shows throughout the year.
