World Gold Council press release

NEW YORK -- The World Gold Council announced today a unique
partnership with plus size couture fashion designer Abby Z to
accessorize her Spring 2006 Collection entitled "It's Good to be Me"
with fine gold jewelry.

The fashion show will be held at the Canal Room on West Broadway as
part of the 7th on Sixth Fashion Week in New York on Tuesday,
September 13th, at 7p.m.

This season Abby Z chose the warmth and radiance of yellow gold
jewelry to accessorize her spring 2006 collection entitled "It's
Good To Be Me." This chic, plus size fashion collection will pay
homage to a woman's intrinsic self-worth and her ability to express
herself with the affordable luxury of couture fashions and fine gold
jewelry.

"As I began designing the spring line," says Abby, "I knew I wanted
to use gold jewelry. It looks good on all skin types and makes you
feel good about yourself when you wear it."

Abby has also added golden hardware to her new designer denim
collection, the first designer denim brand for plus size women. Gold
jewelry and accessories make the natural complement. "Gold looks
terrific with denim, as well as with deep colors and bright whites,"
says Duvall O'Steen, World Gold Council. "So Abby Z's entire show
can easily be styled with the versatile beauty of fine gold jewelry.
It is particularly appropriate for Abby's self-assured, confident
clientele to be 'speaking gold.'"

Abby will showcase her new collection with a star-studded fashion
show that includes Emmy-nominated actress Camryn Manheim (the
Practice"), Angie Stone (R&B singer), Ashlie Atkinson ("Rescue Me"),
Ali vs. Frazier (Khaliah Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali and Jackie
Frazier, daughter of Joe Frazier), and Isabel and Rosario Dawson
(mother and daughter duo), who will all bring the show's theme "It's
Good To Be Me" to life on the runway.

Gold jewelry from multiple designers and suppliers will be included
in the show, and product will range from mass manufactured link
chain to one-of-a-kind designer pieces. A total of 30-35 fashion
looks will be completely accessorized with gold jewelry.

Abby Zeichner, the creator of Abby Z, has been designing plus size
couture fashions for only one year, already gaining a celebrity
following that includes Queen Latifah, Star Jones, Emme, Carnie
Wilson, and Camryn Manheim. After 15 successful years in the fashion
business, designer Abby Z decided it was time to design for a
different customer -- herself. Abby Z is a plus-size woman who
lives, works, and plays in one of the most fashionable cities in the
world, New York City. By starting her own contemporary, flirty, and
fun plus-size line, Abby is proving that women can look stylish
regardless of their size.

The Abby Z line launched in the summer of 2004 at Saks 5th Avenue
and is now carried by Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Dillard's,
Bloomingdale's, and specialty boutiques around the country such as
Vive La Femme.
