Elaine's Big Life Trailer - Series Premiere on Nov. 5th
Season 1 | Episode 1
Fashion Never Looked So Real Or so fun and philanthropic – that’s the message Houston based accessories designer Elaine Turner hopes to convey to viewers on Elaine’s Big Life. The video diary series will show a never before seen, behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous (and at times, not so glamorous) life of a fashion designer embarking on her fifteenth year in business and hitting the national stage with stores in Texas, New York, and Nashville and the opening of her tenth retail store. Each episode will chronicle the growing lifestyle brand and highlight the fun and quirky side of Elaine Turner in her day to day adventures - interacting with her Dream Teams in Houston and New York to discuss new trends, design concepts, marketing and PR strategies, and charitable initiatives; plans for new stores with her retail team; her life at home as a working mom with two children and a husband (who just happens to be the CEO); and of course - her loyal customers and those she's touched with her charity initiatives along the way who cannot wait to see Elaine’s next move.
