Apart from being an active actress, Melissa McCarthy is also an avid fashion designer. Back in 2015, she debuted her first-ever fashion line “Melissa McCarthy Seven7” with innovative live content retailer HSN. Moreover, she was excited for the opportunity to fulfil her passion for fashion. As she elaborated about her motivation and dream in the following words,
“I have loved fashion my whole life. Creating this line has been such an incredible experience, and I’m beyond excited to share it with you. I started sketching and making clothes at an early age and I used to dream of being a designer. Now I’m an actress, and dressing well and experimenting with fashion is still a passion of mine, but I found it harder and harder to find great pieces; not just for the red carpet or a character, but for my everyday life.”
On the other hand, Melissa’s skills and enthusiasm for fashion highly impressed HSN. Bill Brand, President of HSN commented,
“HSN is thrilled to be the launch partner for Melissa’s debut into the world of fashion. When we first met Melissa, we were immediately impressed with her passion for design and the clear point of view she had for her line. She will create a unique and engaging shopping experience that our customers are going to love.”
McCarthy introduced her first collection during the HSN’s popular fashion program, ‘The List with Colleen Lopez’. She used her understanding of fit and style at every size, to create a comprehensive collection that balances style with thoughtful fit features.
“So when I got the opportunity to design a clothing line, I jumped at the chance. I wanted to build a better closet for myself and other women; interesting separates, well-made key pieces that can be mixed and matched to express our mood and personal style on any given day. I’ve been every size on the planet and know that I didn’t lose my sense of style just because I went above a size 12.”
The collection consists of 26 styles, with an assortment of denim, sweaters, tees, woven blouses and ponte bottoms. In addition, she made them charming with vibrant colors, unique prints and modern silhouettes. Even better, all denim in the collection features special technology that provides four key fit features: a slimming panel; back lifting darts; forward seam details; and a contoured waistband.
No doubt, the Melissa McCarthy collection is designed to give all women a whole new love of shopping. As she said,
“I want to help women lose ‘the uniform’ and discover their own personal style.”
