Terri Franklin and her Accents of Color pantyhose line finally have a leg in the door at major retail stores.

Terri Franklin and her Accents of Color pantyhose line finally have a leg in the door at major retail stores. Nordstrom stores now carry the hosiery line made for women of color. Select T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores will debut the line this fall. Franklin's goals are "to expand the line to include knee highs, support hose, and thigh highs." With this deal, projected sales for 2006 are $200,000, and Franklin is expecting to see a 40% increase in sales through 2007. "The deal with Nordstrom paves the way into other department stores. They like the fact that Accents of Color is on the shelves at Nordstrom," reveals Franklin.
