STACY LONDON PRODUCES NEW TLC FASHION SERIES ON ONE-OF-A-KIND BROOKLYN CLOTHING BOUTIQUE
New series follows husband and wife team as they set out to conquer the plus-size fashion world
(NEW YORK, NY) â€“ Itâ€™s plus-size fashion without the minuses of mainstream retail traditions in TLCâ€™s newest series. Executive produced by WHAT NOT TO WEARâ€™s fashion authority, Stacy London, with BBC Worldwide Productions, this eight-part series set to premiere in May 2012 will follow husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan, as they revise and revolutionize the norms of plus-size shopping experiences in their clothing store, Lee Leeâ€™s Valise. Each episode will focus on three different customers as their intimate shopping experience at the store, combined with Lisaâ€™s distinctive clothing line, helps transform their lives.
The average size of an American woman is 14, but no average-sized American woman experiences a normal shopping experience at a typical fashion retailer as only 18% of clothes are a size 14 or over. At Lee Leeâ€™s Valise, women of all shapes and sizes feel confident, fashionable and sexy through Lisaâ€™s custom-made designs, tailored business approach and bold NY personality. Through drama, laughs and a few tears, Lisa and her team will transform their customersâ€™ wardrobe from shab to fab â€” all through the simple and personalized accommodations to fit and flaunt each unique body type.
Running a successful business with a unique focus may seem like a walk in Central Park, but for this outspoken duo, drama is inevitable. While Lisa and Jim have a strong opinion about each and every item in Lee Leeâ€™s Valise, they always put the customer first. Often times the customerâ€™s feedback and personal shopping experience plays a vital role in how Lisa designs her line and stocks her shop.
We are so excited about seeing more positive focus on the plus size industry.
