New York, NY, January 17, 2013: Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc. (NYSE: FNP)

This marks the first of three planned events for 2013, with a similar
presentation for Lucky Brand to take place near the end of the second quarter
and another planned for Juicy Couture near the end of the third quarter.

Commenting on the announcement, William L. McComb, Chief Executive Officer of
Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc. said: "This will be a great venue for current
and potential investors to meet the brand management teams and to hear the
longer term growth plans and opportunities first at kate spade, and later at
Lucky Brand and Juicy Couture, in a more focused setting than the multi-brand
investor days we have conducted in the past. Our intent is for these sessions
to be primers on the long term potential of each business with less focus on
the past year and the past quarter."
