Exclusive: Interview with "Real Housewife" Jill Zarin
I had the opportunity to interview “Real Housewife” Jill Zarin this week. The reality star turned designer is making her debut on HSN with the launch of her Skweez Couture shapewear collection (slated for February 10th). The exclusive collection helps slim and smooth the contours of a women’s body.
I love how the line caters to women from Small to 2XL. What made you decide on such a wide range?
Women come in all shapes and sizes so I wanted to make sure that my collection expressed that. Even the smallest framed woman has something she wants to smooth out. I hope to go up to 4x in the future.
Why did you decide to launch with HSN?
Skweez Couture launched in Lord & Taylor in September 2011. I wanted to launch the line in “brick and mortar” stores so people could touch and feel the product. I designed many exclusive shapewear pieces just for HSN. They will carry a wide array of shaping items including a very special piece that I had custom made for my appearance on Watch What Happens Live and had such an overwhelming response I decided to make it for them for the Skweez Couture line.
As someone who is constantly on the go, what items do you never leave home without?
I never leave the house without my keys, credit card and Iphone!
You obviously do a lot of traveling, what are some tips you can offer moms on the go?
Always have food for distraction, and headphones to give to the person sitting next to your crying baby!
Love her sense of humor!
The Skweez Couture collection for HSN offers a wide range of styles and comes in sizes Small to 2XL making it the perfect line for every body type. Prices for the line range from $20 to $75 and most styles come in both black and nude. Visit HSN for more information.
