Innovative Designs Finds Demand for Arctic Armor Suit and Gloves in Oil and Gas Industry

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- Innovative Designs, Inc. (OTCBB: IVDNQ), "i.d.i.gear," is pleased to announce that it is receiving inquiries, orders and reorders for the Arctic Armor suit and gloves by companies in the Oil and Gas Industry. Arctic Armor features Insultex, the thinnest, lightest and warmest insulator in the market today. Innovative Designs has received tremendous feedback from companies that have operations in the harsh environments of Alaska and Alberta. The Arctic Armor suit and gloves are finding applications as extreme cold-weather industrial gear. The Arctic Armor brand is protecting workers in these harsh environments, while being incredibly lightweight and flexible. These characteristics of the Arctic Armor products foster efficient mobility for outstanding worker productivity.

In 2006, CGGVeritas, a leader in developing natural resources through geophysics, placed a substantial order for Arctic Armor products. CGGVeritas and its employees were so impressed with the Arctic Armor that an additional order was placed in December 2006 in order to meet employee demand.

Larry Wheaton, Safety Advisor for CGGVeritas, commented, "We purchased an unproven product that on paper looked really good. The Arctic Armor suit has proven to be overwhelmingly warm, super-light and stylish, while withstanding the harsh wear and tear environment experienced in northern Alberta. We made the right choice, and we will be coming back for quite a few more this year."

In addition, Innovative Designs, upon request, has provided Arctic Armor suits to major Oil Companies that have operations in Alaska and Canada. The suits are being reviewed for 2007 purchases by these companies because of their superior safety and productivity advantages.

Joseph Riccelli, CEO of Innovative Designs, commented, "We are pleased that our Arctic Armor products are enhancing employee productivity of Oil and Gas Companies that have operations in harsh cold-weather environments."
