Christian Audigier has confirmed plans to showcase Ed Hardy and related lifestyle brands at MAGIC Marketplace this August.

The news comes as a surprise after Audigier’s departure from Project a little over a year ago and the launch of Audigier’s own Las Vegas showcase called “When I Move You Move.”

“We had great success with ‘When I Move You Move’, but once I saw what MAGIC was doing with the debut of Premium at MAGIC, I knew we could build something really special together,” said Audigier. “It’s a great situation for everyone, including the retailers and my licensees and I guarantee you – together with MAGIC – it is going to be an unbelievable experience this summer in Vegas.”

The Audigier universe comprising brands such as Ed Hardy, Christian Audigier, Smet, Crystal Rock, C-Bar-A and Rock Fabulous with Dave Stewart will span no less than 30,000 sq. feet of exhibition space and includes booths, a catwalk and even several interactive attractions.
