NEW YORK — Undaunted by the difficult retail climate, AVA Design has launched the Madison Hill better sportswear label.
Founder and chairman Ludwig Kuttner said at the West 38th Street showroom that the company spent a year developing the travel-friendly styles, such as microfiber pants, a lined fancy twill jacket, quilted vest, boiled-wool sweater jacket and tie-front Tencel blouse, as well as a team, which includes AVA Design president Jonathan Ozdemir and Madison Hill New York sales director Marion Pietrowski.
