Jill Zarin, one of the outspoken characters on “The Real Housewives of New York City,” walks into a showroom with entourage in tow and her chihuahua, Ginger.
Zarin, a self-confessed self-promoter, is on hand to discuss her newest project, a line of shapewear called Skweez Couture by Jill Zarin. The collection, unlike her TV competitor Bethenny Frankel’s shapewear venture, is aimed at better department and specialty stores as well as high-end boutiques and e-commerce businesses. Skweez shapers will be launched Oct. 1 at Lord & Taylor. The line is being produced under license by Triad Hosiery Corp.
