'Big' News At Danier-Noth to Star in Danier's Fall and
Holiday 2004 Campaign

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jun 16, 2004) - Actor Chris 
Noth, best known for playing the elusive and charming Mr. Big on 
Sex and the City and handsome detective Mike Logan on Law and 
Order, will take on a new starring role in Danier Leather's 
upcoming brand campaign to debut in Canada this fall. 

Danier, famous for its collections of fashion and accessories for 
men and women, is one of the world's largest leather companies. 
Noth, who is represented by Ford Models agency, is the first 
celebrity to be featured in a major Danier campaign. 

"We approached Chris Noth in fall 2003, as we felt his 
contemporary, sophisticated look was perfect for our brand," says 
Danier CEO Jeffrey Wortsman. "Not only does he look fantastic in 
leather, he directly appeals to our customer. Women find him sexy 
and charismatic, while men see him as the ultimate 'guy': cool, 
confident and stylish." 

The fall images will be shot on location in New York City by 
fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco, whose client roster 
includes Polo Ralph Lauren, Guess, Bergdorf Goodman and 
Victoria's Secret. The new Danier brand campaign will launch 
throughout Canada in September.
