Y Brands to Preview Holiday '07 and Spring '08 Collections at Upcoming MAGIC Tradeshow; Michael Stone Appointed Vice President of National Sales for All Divisions

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 20, 2007) - The Y Brands division of Total Luxury Group, Inc.(PINKSHEETS: TLEI) will be previewing their Holiday '07 and Spring '08 collections at Exhibit Booth # YM 21322 at the MAGIC Apparel tradeshow which is being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center - Hall S1 in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 27-30, 2007.

In addition, in an effort to further expand company sales for all divisions nationwide, Total Luxury Group has appointed apparel industry veteran Michael Stone to manage all of the company's sales departments, specifically the Y Brands division, due to the recent departure of Y Brands salesman David Berkman.

Mr. Stone has over 40 years of apparel experience, which began with McGregor Sportswear. Mike later went on to form his own company, D. Stone Industries, with his brother, Dan Stone. As one of the early pioneers of importing apparel from the Orient, D. Stone Industries was well known for three major labels that have left a lasting impression on the fashion industry: Huk-A-Poo, Logistics, and Essentials. While at D. Stone Industries, Michael was Vice Chairman and oversaw all sales, marketing, finance, design and shipping. Under Mr. Stone's directive, the company's innovative apparel design for both men and women resulted in sales that exceeded $300 million.

"We are very excited to have a person with Mike's experience and contacts leading the sales efforts of our growing company," explained Janon Costley, COO of Total Luxury Group. "We believe that Mr. Stone is well suited to quickly develop, implement and maintain an effective and efficient sales strategy that will increase the visibility and distribution of all of our properties."

The company is also currently seeking to hire additional sales representatives and/or account managers for all divisions.
