‘Empire’ and Saks Fifth Avenue team up on fashion collection
First music, now fashion. FOX’s hit drama, “Empire,” is now making waves on Fifth Avenue. The pop culture phenomenon has its own fashion collection at the storied department store, Saks Fifth Avenue.
Oscar-nominated Lee Daniels kicked off the festivities at the department store during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 12 to celebrate the launch of the exclusive collection inspired by the show.
Cast members, sans Taraji P. Henson, whose flight was delayed, Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Gray,were on hand to celebrate the launch. Looking flawless and fab were Gabourey Sidibe (Becky), Ta’Rhonda Jones (Porsha) and Grace Gealey (Anika “Boo Boo Kitty” Calhoun), Terrence Howard (Lucious), Trai Byers (Andre), and Kaitlyn Doubleday (Rhonda).
The “Empire”-themed windows will be on display at the New York and Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue flagships from Sept. 10 through Oct. 7. Shop the luxe “Empire” State of Mind collection here.
