JUKU COUTURE™ FUNKY, FASHION-FORWARD DOLL LINE ENCOURAGES GIRLS TO MIX-UP THEIR STYLE
Juku Couture™ Dolls Audrina™, Jün™, Kana™ and Taylor™ – New Fashion Icons for
Malibu, CA – February 17, 2008 – JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (Nasdaq: JAKK) plays upon one of the most popular new
trends in high fashion and on the streets of today’s trendiest kids, the mismatching and layering of clothes and accessories with its Juku Couture™ unique doll and accessory product line. Juku Couture is inspired by the limitless possibilities and fashionable combinations that mismatching and layering pieces offers girls to express themselves and have fun!
Outfits that don’t match are actually today’s new fashion statement! The new style started with the famous fashion trendsetters in Harajuku, Japan who started purposely mismatching and layering fashion as a form of
self-expression. In Harajuku, mixing different styles and mismatching colors and patterns is encouraged
– girls can do anything they want as long as their outfit is a thoughtful expression of their own individuality. Today, influential performing artists are spearheading this new vogue in fashion, with girls
and celebrities creating their own looks with multiple layers and colors all over the world! JAKKS
exemplifies this unique fashion trend with the Juku Couture doll line.
“Juku Couture is the only doll line that gives young girls a creative outlet for self-expression through
fashion based on the mismatched and layered trend,” said Michael Rinzler, Vice President of Marketing, JAKKS Pacific. “Each of the four beautiful, poseable dolls feature exquisite “real” glass eyes, multiple points of articulation, and have the possibility to create more than 10 different looks with just one outfit! Audrina™, Jün™, Taylor™ and Kana™ are the four highly collectible, fashionably inspirational Juku Couture Girls that come with their own stories and spunky attitudes!”
