Nene Leakes is trying to do big things in the fashion industry

Nene-LeakesReported by Liku Zelleke

Nene Leakes, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, has shown that she has a knack she can add to her acting, producing and writing resume – one for fashion designing. Proof lies in the fact that she has been able to create a new line of designer fashion which almost sold out in record time.

Her fall designs with HSN were admired so much by her fans that her collection that was launched a week ago had most of its styles sold out in just one day.

Leakes talked about her creations and what it was that inspired her to step into the fashion industry when she sat down for an interview with MadameNoire.

“I wanted women of all ages, all shapes, all sizes to feel comfortable and confident in the clothes that they’re wearing,” she said. “My motto was, for every woman to walk into her closet, walk out of her closet and own it. I just want them to own it.”

She also added that she wanted to make sure that women were able to share her personal style. “I would go out like that. I would have women that would approach me and say things like, ‘Hey NeNe where do you buy your clothes?’ First thing they would say, ‘You’ve lost so much weight.’ And I would say ‘No, I haven’t.’, “Leakes said.” … people thought I was plus size from watching me on television and I would say, you know I need to come out with a line of  clothing that makes women feel good, affordable luxury. I’m able to walk through the store and obviously buy things that are very expensive but there was a time in my life when I couldn’t afford things either.”

Talking about how she came to partner with HSN, she said that it “felt right” to work with them. “When they walked into the room, we totally clicked. And you need to really work with people who really understand and get you,” Leakes said.

    Congrats. I saw her clothing line on HSN and her clothing did sell quite well. I love the material she uses for her tops. I am planning to buy a couple of her items just to have in my closet.

    Her clothing is primarily for ghetto girls with no fashion sense. Well, no ghetto girl has fashion sense. They walk around out of shape in ill fitting, tight clothing with Kool aid colored hair looking a family of parakeets decided to make a home on their heads. They have the worst fashion sense.

      Are you really a Rick, Anthony or Wifred? I think you are using a “male” name to post, but actually you are women.

    People like Noni don’t even desedrve a response. She’s jealous because NeNe is a success. Don’t hate…try to do better for yourself Noni.

    I clearly struck a nerve with the hood chicks. They’re mad yall! Go call Maury to find out who at least one of your baby daddies are with your parakeet colored hair and grossly out of shape bodies. And yes you have terrible fashion sense, it’s no secret.

    Yet you responded ghetto Daisy. Rick (or is it Rickisha?) do you not realize that you just offered an opinion? Well, nobody has ever accused hood chicks of being intelligent.

    Noni, it’s sad that you so easily desecrate the success of another woman and women who live in the ghetto. Neither deserves your verbal abuse. At the end of the day, all any of us can do is try. Nothing beats a fail BUT a try. And apparently, according to record sales, Nene’s try, soared! It’s cool not to like her line. No one can fault you for that. But I’m just curious to know, what is it you seek to accomplish by bashing her like that? Does it make you feel better about yourself to debase others? Did you grow up surrounded by negativity? Because only that would explain why your comment is so vile. I hope you never attempt to achieve something important to you, only to have it defiled by someone who sounds just like you.

    PS-Noni, by-the-way, poverty doesn’t equate to ignorance. Just read your comments. There are ignorant people who aren’t poor. Some of the most intelligent people who significantly contributed to our history, our world, our existence were poor and/or lived in the ghetto. Oprah Winfrey, James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Russell Simmons, Frederick Douglass, Malcolm X, August Wilson..so many more. Well, nobody has ever accused middle to upper class chicks of being intelligent either.
