“Holly Robinson Peete is one of the most highly-respected women in entertainment and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to our family,” said Bob Rosenblatt, Chairman and interim CEO at EVINE Live. “Like our customers, Holly leads a busy life. She’s an actress, author, philanthropist, wife and mother of four. When we partnered to develop this fashion collection, she made it clear that she wanted to create something that busy women like her… really all women… could enjoy. I believe we’ve accomplished what we set out to do together, all while keeping the collection affordable, exclusive and accessible to all women.”
Holly first hinted that she was getting into the fashion business this past Saturday on her OWN reality television series, For Peete’s Sake. The series captured the first meetings between Holly and EVINE Live.
“When EVINE Live first approached me about creating my own line of clothing, it was a dream come true,” said Holly Robinson Peete. “Fashion is something I’ve always been passionate about and I’m excited to share my style with women everywhere. HRP is everything I look for in my own clothing… comfort, color and relaxed styles that flatter my figure.”
David Miller, Vice President of Fashion and Accessories at EVINE Live, also recalls his first interactions with Holly: “The first thing that struck me about Holly was her warmness and approachability, which are traits that are so important in our business. When it comes to selling product on television, the personality is almost as important as the product. In Holly’s case, she has both. She’s real, she’s relatable and her fashion collection perfectly reflects her busy life and casual style. Our customers will immediately fall in love with Holly and HRP.”
Premiering May 27 and 28 during EVINE Live’s summer fashion event, Holly will offer a number of relaxed styles, including tops, bottoms, skirts and dresses. Designed to wear everywhere, HRP includes a variety of design details such as crochet, tie dye, knits and more. HRP’s fresh color palate and airy, lightweight designs are perfect for warm weather. Bright colors and vibrant tones, including bold blues, coral reds, aqua and peach, play together beautifully and make HRP a must-have for any summer wardrobe.
