Real Housewife of ATL Launches Fashion Line


Lisa Hartwell, of Real Housewives of Atlanta fame, has stated her own clothing line called Closet Freak.  The name of the line comes from a nickname given to her by her co-stars.  Peep what she had to say about her new collection in an Essence.com interview:

ESSENCE.COM: Last night was the unveiling of your new collection, Closet Freaks. So exactly how risqué are these garments?

LISA WU HARTWELL: (Laughs.) It’s not what you might think. It’s more than just a clothing line, it’s a movement. I don’t claim to be a fashion designer, but I am about women’s empowerment. When women wear Closet Freaks apparel they know that they are empowered and confident. You don’t have to dress provocative to be sexy. You can still be a lady and leave some things for the imagination and the bedroom.

ESSENCE.COM: We hear that. So what inspired the name?

HARTWELL: (Laughs.) Last season on the show there was an episode where someone was teaching us how to pole dance, and we were sitting around and the instructor said we had to come up with a “stripper” name. I couldn’t think of one for the life of me, but when they put on the music and I started dancing (remember, I used to be a hip-hop dancer for Public Enemy and E.P.M.D. back in the day) they all started calling me a Closet Freak and I’m like, Hmmm, I can brand that name and turn it into something positive, so I did. I plan to include thongs and other items as well.


I’m sorry Lisa, I really like you.  But this looks like Closet Crap to me…like the South Pole/Baby Phat/Fila apparel found on your neighborhood A.J. Wright rack.
