How Alyssa Milano Created a Fan-Gear Fashion Empire for Women

Hi there, I am Aniek and I am taking back Alyssa Milano Online. Thanks a lot to Chanel for taking such good care of it! I added a new layout, made possible by the talented Ray! I hope you all like it. My first update is an article about how Alyssa Milano Created a Fan-Gear Fashion Empire for Women. Read about it below and make sure you click the link to see the full interview!

Alyssa Milano isn’t crazy about pink. “I was in Dodger Stadium, and I was freezing—it was the beginning of the season, before the poop smell sets in,” says the star of TV’s Who’s the Boss? andCharmed, recalling a baseball game she attended eight years ago. “I went into the store to get something warm to wear. And I was offended.” The only color available in women’s clothing was pink. “Their answer for female sports apparel back then was ‘pink it and shrink it.’ It was either that or buy something from the kids’ section. Which I did. I got a kid’s hoodie.” In Dodger blue.

Milano, 40, figured she could do better than the mini Pepto-Bismol tees. So in 2007 she paid a fashion illustrator to draw some less boxy, team-color-appropriate clothing. Her agent happened to be friends with someone at Major League Baseball’s marketing division and got her a meeting with some execs. They liked her idea enough to set her up with former New York Giant Carl Banks, who runs the sports clothing collection for G-III Apparel Group, the $1.2 billion company that has licensing deals with Levi’s, Guess? (GES), Calvin Klein (PVH), and the major sports leagues. G-III Apparel agreed to manufacture and distribute her nascent line, Touch by Alyssa Milano, which had this motto: “Where the game meets the after party.”

“My idea was to make Touch fashionable enough for women to wear outside the arena,” Milano says. The line, which was launched in 2008, now includes $85 quilted jackets in team colors, $45 jeans with logos on the back pockets, and $30 pendant necklaces with the logo in a crystal-lined silver heart. Milano chose the designs and modeled every piece on her website.

Alyssa Milano on revealing her NASCAR secret

Has anyone ever told you a juicy piece of gossip and you swore to keep it secret? All of a sudden each conversation that follows feels like you’re sitting on a witness stand.

If they just said, “Hey, no big deal, but listen to this…” you’d forget it seconds later, and never tell anybody. But when they say, “Don’t tell a soul!” for some reason our poker faces melt off and we’re an open book.

That’s kind of what happened to me recently while sitting in the guest’s chair on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” I had been waiting and waiting and waiting to tell this huge, exciting secret. I couldn’t wait any longer! So I told millions of people.

I’m part of the NASCAR family! How the heck am I supposed to keep that one under wraps? Would you?

That’s right, my women’s fashion collection, Touch by Alyssa Milano is now available for all female NASCAR fans! And, I’m absolutely thrilled to let everyone know.

Better yet, you don’t have to leave this site to see the new NASCAR styles. They’re all right here on NASCAR.com. Visit www.nascar.com/superstore to check them out!

As you guys may know, I’m a passionate sports fan. And I love sharing that passion with other sports fans. And no one is more passionate than NASCAR fans.

That’s why I’m so excited about bringing Touch to NASCAR. I’m hoping that the millions of female NASCAR fans will love it as much they love NASCAR. I mean, the first rule of being a NASCAR fan is choosing your favorite driver, right? The new Touch Collection will help you do just that. Gotta support your guy – or girl … and look stylish doing it!

Women flock to the race tracks every weekend as much as men do. I don’t think there’s any sport with a more loyal female fan base than NASCAR. It’s a perfect fit!

So I hope you guys love the new Touch NASCAR Collection. I’m really proud of it, and excited to be able to finally share it with all my fellow female NASCAR fans.

See you at the races!

Peace, Love and NASCAR, Alyssa

Sneak Peak: TOUCH by Alyssa Milano Eyewear

Good day netters! I have even more exciting news for y’all today. Apparantly, Alyssa is going to expand her clothing line “TOUCH by Alyssa Milano” this summer, adding an 16 frame “Touch by Alyssa Milano Eyewear collection” to it. I’ve posted an article releated to it below, which also sums up a couple of her current projects. It’s a good read for sure! Alyssa also did a beautiful photoshoot to promote the glasses, which I have added to our galleries.

Mistresses is looking to be one of this summer’s favorite guilty pleasures, and Alyssa Milano plays Savi Davis, a lawyer on the partner track at work whose marriage has gone stale and is struggling with her attraction for her coworker.

With the classic long-running series Who’s the Boss and Charmed behind her, Alyssa Milano continues to grow as an actor while managing successful brand, Touch by Alyssa Milano. Additionally, she is known for her commitment to philanthropic work.

Alyssa Milano has also been named as the new host of Project Runway: All Stars when its third season makes it debut. Beyond her Touch by Alyssa Milano eyewear and clothing line, Alyssa’s participation in the Project Runway: All Stars franchise demonstrates her interest in the next generation of emerging American designers.

Alyssa Milano’s next foray into design includes her 16 frame Touch by Alyssa Milano eyewear collection, coming this summer exclusively to Coastal.com.

Designed for a fun and fearless woman, the Touch eyewear collection is an extension of Alyssa’s casual, sultry style. The blend of modern acetate and colors and the vintage inspired elements of high temples, cat eye slants and modified wayfarer shapes are an ideal feminine blend.

These are just a few of our favorite styles from the collection – whose launch we are eagerly awaiting.

– A cool wayfarer glasses frame is given new life with hints of purple – drawing attention to the eyes when they hit the light.

– Cat eye glasses are back, and provide feminine appeal in a flattering brown shade.

– A rectangular frame is freshened up with high temples and a unique layered acetate with a tortoiseshell accent.
