Back in November 2013, reality TV star and actress Nene Leakes held a casting call in Atlanta, seeking curvy girls, sizes 10 and up. This made many speculate that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star had a plus size clothing line in the works.
Nene has now answered those rumors with an announcement on her website recently, telling the world that she will be launching a new clothing line on HSN.
The new clothing line, called “The Nene Leakes Collection”, will be made available July 28th. Nene will be live in the HSN Studio to promote her new collection, which will be available in sizes 2 to 24.
Nene has not disclosed many details but the little information that has been given has people abuzz about it, in anticipation of its unveiling. Her partnership with HSN is something we are looking forward to seeing because it is part of the shift we are seeing in the plus size fashion industry.
With many celebrities and designers such as IMAN, Carmen Marc Valvo, Giuliana Rancic, David Meister, Twiggy and others, offering clothing not just in straight sizes but plus sizes as well, HSN has become a major contender in the plus size fashion retail world. HSN has made stylish designer ready-to-wear clothing accessible to plus size women while making it affordable and easy to buy.
