Torrid Launches New Collection Inspired by “Empire”


This week, plus size fashion retailer Torrid launched its #EmpirexTorrid collection, inspired by the women of FOX hit TV show Empire.

The retailer partnered with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products to create the collection that launches in time with the show’s third season premiere on FOX September 21.


The limited edition collection features looks inspired by the show’s five leading characters: Cookie Lyon, Anika Calhoun, Rhonda Lyon, Porsha Taylor and Becky Williams. It’s available exclusively at

According to the retailer:

“Each piece is flawlessly designed for women sizes 10 to 30, letting them channel their favorite characters: Cookie’s diva with a capital ‘D’ extravagance, Anika’s sly sophistication, Rhonda’s fierce fashion sense, Porsha’s urban cool and Becky’s understated glam.”


Kate Horton, SVP, General Merchandising Manager at Torrid said in an official statement:

“We’re huge fans of ‘Empire’ and our customers love it too. So, we’re super proud to have designed this ‘Empire’ fashion collection. Now women of all different shapes and sizes can dress like the show’s leading characters: Cookie, Anika, Rhonda, Porsha and Becky.”

The 12-piece #EmpirexTorrid fashion collection include intricate details such as the ombre hues of Cookie’s luxurious faux fur coat, lace-up detailing on her curve-hugging blazer and pants, and the zipup side slit in Anika’s siren red dress. Sexy silhouettes demand attention in bold colors and custom prints.
