Donna Karan Selects RLM FashionManager As Global Systems Platform

LYNDHURST, N.J. — October 18, 2011 — RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces that leading
fashion design house Donna Karan International has selected FashionManager™ enterprise software to
manage all global operations. The comprehensive business solution will serve as the information
system backbone for the company’s complete range of apparel, bags, shoes, and accessories product
lines. The fully integrated, functionally advanced solution promises to help Donna Karan achieve
higher levels of productivity and efficiency while streamlining operations and increasing business
process visibility.

According to Cindy Payero, Vice President DK/DKNY Systems, “While our operations were already
quite efficient, we knew that we could benefit from state-of-the-art technology. After a thorough
evaluation, we concluded that RLM provided the best option for our diverse product and
international process requirements. By supporting our entire operation, FashionManager will enable
us to eliminate functional and visibility gaps throughout our business.”

When fully implemented, the FashionManager software will be used by about 400 Donna Karan
associates in the New York headquarters and other global operations centers in the United States,
the Netherlands, and Hong Kong. The company’s supply partners will also have access to relevant
information through an integrated vendor portal. The FashionManager solution will manage order
processing and fulfillment in multiple currencies and will increase accuracy and speed deliveries
to Donna Karan and independent department and specialty retail stores. 

“We look forward to the ease of use and productivity that FashionManager provides”, added
Payero. “In addition to its many advanced capabilities, ease of use was very important to our
teams. Features like the one-click export to Excel® and the individually configurable tables will
greatly enhance the user experience.”

Implementation of the new system is expected to begin soon at the company’s New York
headquarters and New Jersey distribution center. 

“We are pleased to be selected as the global systems solution for Donna Karan”, noted RLM
Vice President Andy Lynn. “As one of the most successful and efficient companies in the business,
we applaud their vision to equip their teams with the most advanced technology possible. We look
forward to helping them achieve even greater levels of operational excellence and competitiveness.”
