Turn up the volume: Liza Minnelli is taking on the world of fashion and making beautiful music
What good is sitting alone in your room? No good can be had by it and life certainly can be cabaret. A new day is dawning at Home Shopping Network (HSN) and who better to set the pace than the unparalleled dynamo Liza Minnelli! During a recent chat as Ms. Minnelli was dashing with the ever present grace of nothing less than an athlete, she was kind enough to slow down long enough to spare me the exhaustion of watching her in action to comment on her new adventure.
“My life has provided me the ability to amass a wonderful wardrobe designed by fashion’s brightest stars,” said Liza Minnelli. “I am excited to work with HSN in launching The Liza Collection and to have the opportunity to share my favorite looks with millions of women who want to look fabulous and feel their very best.”
"We are honored to offer our customers this exclusive fashion collection from Liza Minnelli. Partnering with such a renowned star reinforces HSN's unique ability to effortlessly bridge the worlds of fashion and entertainment," said Lynne Ronon, Executive Vice President of Merchandising, HSN. "As one of the most celebrated entertainers today, I am confident Liza will connect directly with HSN customers in marrying her iconic style with their own."
The collection is yet another “first” for Liza, bringing to life some of her most enduring looks, including sequined separates and signature flowy pants. Jewelry is inspired from some of her most treasured pieces pulled straight from her jewelry box including necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings.
What more could a woman ask for and will this remarkable woman ever slow down? Her publicist, Scott Gorenstein told me, "Wherever Liza goes she is always being stopped and asked about her jewelry and clothes. So many pieces that she wears are just so ... 'Liza'. We all know she has a distinct style and after she makes her HSN debut we'll probably be seeing it on women all around the country."
So what does all this mean? Quite simply “Some People”, or rather an army of women across the nation can now experience “Liza with a Z” up close and personal and enjoy it without having to be a “Big Spender”.
The Liza Collection will debut at 10 p.m.–midnight EDT on June 30 at HSN and hsn.com. Retail prices for apparel will range from $29.90 for a Charmeuse Scarf to $129.90 for a Sequined Boyfriend Blazer and for jewelry from $39.95 for Silver-tone Triple Heart Pave Drop Earrings to $79.95 for a Silver-tone Pave Rose Bangle.
Liza Minnelli is one of the most versatile and highly regarded performers in the entertainment industry. She began her show business career at an early age and won her first Tony Award for Best Actress in a musical by the time she was 19. Since then, Liza has garnered critical acclaim for various acting roles and has risen to international stardom. Along with countless honors and awards, Liza Minnelli is one of very few personalities to win entertainment’s top four awards – The Oscar, The Tony, The Emmy and The Grammy.
