It is a publicly traded holding, brand development and management company offering consumer products and services in high-end casual apparel as well as couture items and accessories to the customers worldwide, through a network or retail department and specialty stores, wholesale and via the Internet.
Here are a few things we do. Working to perfect our brand development and management business model we have conducted negotiations with various brand management companies, as well as established and/or distressed brand purveyors looking to enhance their business with our management's experience with the purpose of maximizing the revenues, residuals and other forms of added value, which come with successful introduction of the new or expansion of the existing brands into the markets we serve. In an effort to develop bonus worth for our shareholders we are working on creation of the portfolio of brands, in which we may own substantial principal equity. With that purpose we partnered up with an established equity fund, acquired and are managing unique brands of premium denim and other casual apparel known as PRVCYPREMIUM and PRVCYWEAR, as well as are working on development of other casual couture brands and acquisitions of existing companies in fashion accessories sand other consumer goods. We believe that our brand development, marketing and management program may bring substantial value to our shareholders and create long-term streams of residual revenue.
The common denominator between all those various businesses is our vertically integrated and professionally managed core holding infrastructure, which provides for the execution of our well-coordinated investment and expansion strategy under the leadership of experienced industry professionals.

PRVCY Continues Production and Sales of Premium Denim & Upgrades Infrastructure
"Christian Wicks further stated, "The integration of our operational infrastructure with Defiance USA, owned and run by my father Christopher Wicks, allows us to efficiently utilize his well-developed office and warehousing facility, which helps us streamline our own overhead and save significant capital investment, and also gives us access to the wealth of the branding and advisory services related to development of our own network of licensees and new customers for our PRVCY Premium line of products."
Christopher Wicks added, "I am more than happy to have Christian and his new venture PRVCY Premium, work from my space at 3131 S. Broadway. I truly believe that the brand has huge potential in a market bereft of ideas for premium denim and tops. The collections I have seen have been truly quite amazing and I am very pleased as a businessman and a father that my son and I are once again working together."

PRVCY Attends Trade Show; Further Develops Licensing and Private Label Strategies
"We were pleasantly surprised by the turnout at the show and the interest to our PRVCY Premium denim products and the tops, which we had presented at the show," stated Christian Wicks, President of Omni Ventures, Inc. Wicks continued, "Even though considerable resources were spent last year on optimizing the management structure of the Company, defining its product development strategies and vetting its vendor base, we also made our best effort to continue introducing to the market the new designs of our PRVCY Premium brand products as well as also offering the overhauled and updated proven "legacy" designs of men's and women's jeans and t-shirts. We are pleased to report that the latest appearance at "The Project" has not only brought back some customers from our existing list, but also assisted in obtaining firm purchase orders from the significant new customers such as the iconic "Boogies" store in Aspen, CO, and the famous "Akira" group of stores in Chicago, IL. Additionally, we have made further progress in our work aimed at returning PRVCY Premium denim products and tops to the shelves of the national department stores. As a milestone strategy event for our Company, we started work with the leading licensing and private label development conglomerates with the goal of completing the transformation of PRVCY Couture, Inc. into a full-scale design, branding, licensing, and "brick and click" direct marketing, e-commerce and retail company.
