Catalog Launches In Homes, On HSN Almost Simultaneously

Share this article:
The launch this week of a new catalog from Cornerstone Brands called IOS, for Individual Original Style, is being supported with spots on TV shopping network HSN.

Cornerstone Brands and HSN are divisions of IAC/InterActiveCorp, which views this type of cross marketing as a key strategy.

"The coordinated introduction of IOS into the marketplace via catalog and TV-retail epitomizes everything we are striving to accomplish with the recent acquisition of Cornerstone Brands," said Rob Gruen, HSN vice president of merchandising. "Channeling the incredible power of the TV-shopping medium to support the introduction of a new catalog brand into the market is a formula for success when targeting this highly appealing demographic."

IOS is a women's fashion apparel catalog designed for women ages 40-55 who want to express their individuality through easy-to-wear, fashion-forward choices. It was created by Cornerstone Brands' TravelSmith Outfitters division.
