How is Rebecca Taylor riding out the recession?
We feel good about our position in the market for Spring and Fall. We are a key vendor to many of our retail partners and as such have increased our market share. Our Spring 2009 sell through has been positive so we are cautiously optimistic.
Do you get back to New Zealand at all?
