LOS ANGELES, May 11 /CNW/ - Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. (OTCBB: HHWW) is
pleased to announce that the Horiyoshi brand has been recognized in the
May 8th, 2011 Sunday edition of You Magazine www.mailonline.com. The magazine can be found under the "You mag" icon on the Mail online

their online store www.brownsfashion.com. The article can also be seen at the Horiyoshi website, www.horiyoshi-thethird.com under the news feed and is also included as part of our press section.
The Daily Mail is enormously popular in Britain and internationally and
the paper claims to have the largest circulation in the UK. The
publisher, Associated Newspapers Ltd, calls the Sunday edition The Mail
on Sunday which features You Magazine. You Magazine is a three-time
winner at the British Press Awards.
Dawn Green, Commercial Director of Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. had this to
say about the You Magazine feature, "We continue to focus on one of our
strategic goals and that is building brand recognition in Europe which
we believe will translate into growing our distribution network and
revenues internationally. The Daily Mail is read by millions of people
and You Magazine reaches an audience much like the magazines featured
in the New York Times or the Los Angeles Times. This type of exposure
which points the buyer to Brown's is an excellent way to establish a
rapport with our clientele".
Robert Forrest, Creative Director of Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. had this
to say about the You Magazine appearance, "Our appearance in You
Magazine focuses on what we believe is becoming a rallying point in our
luxury line which is our scarves. We understand there is great
competition in our market and as we continue to produce a garment that
people love it serves to draw their attention to the rest of our line.
We have gotten a great response to our scarves and are seeing people
focus on our line in its entirety".
