Company Spotlight - December 2011

Denimocracy

Rhapsody Clothing Inc. is based in Los Angeles and sells its made-in-U.S.A. juniors lines throughout North America. The driving force behind the phenomenal growth of the company is Bryan Kang, Rhapsody’s chief executive and president.

Rhapsody recently opened its first shop-within-a-shop in Korea, calling the new retail venture Love Scene. Located at Home Plus, one of South Korea’s leading chains, Home Plus is jointly owned by the U.K. based Tesco company. Bryan Kang forecasts a growth of more than 100 Love Scene shops in Home Plus locations across South Korea by the end of 2012.

According to Bryan, “Asian people love to see the Made in U.S.A. label”. Rhapsody’s design team in Los Angeles will continue to create the vision for the global products with Love Scene’s knit tops and dresses carrying the ‘made-in USA’ label, and shipped directly from the Los Angeles headquarters.

This foray into Asian retailing will put Rhapsody on a growth spurt, predicted to skyrocket the company’s divisions into a major international brand within the next five years.
