Below is a brief history of the Danskin Brand.
New York City-based Triumph Apparel Corporation, formerly Danskin Inc., is a diversified activewear company and the official licensee, manufacturer and distributor of a complete line of Danskin[R] women's and girls exercise, dance, cheer, yoga, lifestyle apparel and fitness equipment. After the sale of its Danskin[R] intellectual property to Iconix Brand Group, Inc. the company re-established the Triumph name, which had been the brands corporate moniker earlier in its 125 year history. Danskin[R] brand is sold through better department and sporting goods stores nationwide, through more than 2,500 dance shops in the U.S., Canada and overseas, and through its own freestanding Danskin[R] boutiques and its internet merchant site Danskin.com.
Since 1882, Danskin has been the world's leading manufacturer of women's dance and active wear. At Danskin, they use performance fabrics and precise cutting specifications to create the most comfortable, functional and fashionable designs. Effective August 2, 2007, Danskin Inc., changed its name to Triumph Apparel Corporation.
The name change was required as part of the sale of its Danskin[R] intellectual property, to Iconix Brand Group, Inc. ("Iconix") in March 2007. As part of the transaction, Danskin entered into a license agreement with Iconix to continue to operate the Danskin[R] wholesale business, including its freestanding retail stores and its internet merchant site, Danskin.com. Around that time, Carol Hochman, Triumphs Chief Executive Officer said "There has been no change in management and Triumph Apparel Corporation will be providing the same products and fine service under the Danskin[R] name on which we have built our reputation in the industry".
