MELBOURNE, Australia, April 13, 2011 - Australian brand development powerhouse, lime door brands has signed a
global deal with international burlesque star and fashion icon Dita Von
Teese. The agreement sees lime door brands and the performer becoming
co-owners of a number of brands.

lime door brands' first offering with Von Teese will be a line of
lingerie and associated undergarments. The collection - with sizes ranging
from extra-small to plus-sizes, and bras up to an E-cup - will offer a touch
of glamour to women of all sizes and shapes. The line is intended for global

Dita Von Teese said, "I love lingerie that fits well and is also
beautiful, bringing function together with glamour and sensuality. I am
especially excited to be designing lingerie with a vast sizing range so that
women of all shapes and sizes can have a beautiful, sensual lingerie wardrobe
that suits their body type. Indulging in elegant lingerie isn't about the
seduction of another person, it's about seducing yourself first and embracing
womanhood and femininity."

"Dita Von Teese is world-renowned as a burlesque performer. She is
probably best described as an old-school Hollywood siren," said lime door
brands' Chief Executive Officer, Michele Hamdorf. "With a Twitter following
over 674,000, Dita Von Teese is arguably one of the biggest global style
icons of today," she added. "Her success has been based on her strong head
for business and her distinctiveness. As a brand strategist and developer, I
am certain that our collaboration will prove similarly successful."

According to Hamdorf, it is anticipated that the product offering will be
extended in time, with the introduction of a dress range and other
categories. After its introduction into Australia later this year, plans are
already afoot for an immediate expansion into international markets -
starting with the UK in 2012.

"This is an exciting opportunity," Dita said. "I'm delighted to be in the
process of creating both a line of retro-glamorous clothing and lingerie in a
new partnership with Australian company lime door brands."
