Total Luxury Group, Inc., Y Brands Subsidiary, Has Successful Showing at MAGIC Apparel Tradeshow

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- Total Luxury Group, Inc. (OTCBB: TLEI) recently debuted the Back to School and Fall collections for Y Brands, Inc., which includes the labels Type-Y, Y-Chrome and YMLA, at the bi-annual MAGIC Apparel show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center February 12-16. The show marked the first time that all of the company's brands were displayed at the same place and time in a combined exhibit booth space. "Based on early orders and reactions from buyers, we are expecting to generate about $1.5 - $2 million in Fall receipts from contacts made at the MAGIC show," said Janon Costley, COO of Total Luxury Group, Inc.

"We had a very good reception at MAGIC; our product lines looked great and all of our existing major accounts, including Hot Topic, Stage Stores, Peebles and Boscov's, were pleased with the consistent direction of our mid-tier label, Y-Chrome. We also received an excellent response on the new Type-Y collection from many of the major department stores that previewed the line," said David Berkman, President of Y Brands, Inc.

Type-Y is a fashion forward, trend right young men's product line to be sold primarily in the moderate-to-better department and specialty store channel of distribution. Berkman continued, "We are offering a fashion right product at affordable prices, which will enable us to position the brand as a fabulous value for the department store customer. Several divisions of Federated Department Stores, Dillard's and Bon Ton/Carson previewed the product and are currently evaluating their needs for Fall '07 deliveries."

"The fashion customers reacted very positively to our new fashion wovens. There was also a similar reaction to our fashion knits and our assortment of fleece all over print 'hoodies,' which should be a major category for the upcoming Back to School and Fall deliveries for all of our customers as well," says Jeffrey Wu, creative director and principal designer for Y Brands. Costley stated, "David, Jeffrey and our entire Y Brands design team have really hit the ground running with exciting styles, washes and fabrics that really are in touch with today's young men's customer. They have a great pulse on the market and have developed a tremendously loyal customer base which should equal success at retail."
