“Since joining EVINE Live last year, Paula Deen has become a regular face on our network and a beloved member of our family. We’re thrilled to continue expanding Paula’s brand and sharing her sophisticated style with viewers,” said Penny Burnett, Chief Merchandising Officer of EVINE Live. “While not widely known, Paula is actually quite the fashionista. In fact, her personal wardrobe is so large that she had to install a moving dry cleaning rack inside her closet. With the debut of this new collection, fans will have the opportunity to step inside Paula’s closet and experience her savory sense of style for themselves.”
“If there’s one thing I love more than cooking, it’s clothing,” said Paula Deen. “Whether I’m at EVINE Live, on the set of my cooking shows or just stopping by one of my restaurants for an order of Savannah crab cakes, people always seem to be asking, ‘Paula, where did you get that outfit?’ I can’t wait to start telling them, ‘at EVINE Live, ya’ll!’”
“Paula Deen’s Closet,” which will launch on April 11 and 12, builds on the success of her exclusive home, kitchen and pantry collections. Debuting on the heels of “Paula Deen’s Home” this past weekend, “Paula Deen’s Closet” will premiere with a broad assortment of exclusive styles. The clothing line will feature a number of sophisticated and colorful pieces, including jackets, bottoms, dresses and more. Reflective of Paula’s personal style, the soft, flowy and comfortable designs showcase bright prints, lace details and more.
