Hellenic will launch at its expanded space during the market its new Bob Mackie designer collection, as well as introductions to its Cristina Ferrare and the World Vineyards collection from the Dick Idol Group. The company will also show its new Elegance collection.
In related news, president Steve Mazarakis said Hellenic, for the first time in many years, will not be participating this season at the Surfaces flooring show in Las Vegas .
"We feel that Surfaces overlaps with Atlanta , and we will see 90 percent of our customers in Atlanta ," he explained. "The 10 percent we won't see we will personally go visit. With the funds we would have used in Vegas we have expanded to make a better presentation in Atlanta and also to make a presence at the Dallas and Tupelo Markets."
