Shereé Whitfield, 52, finally debuted her SHE by Shereé fashion collection for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Season 14 finale, but not before The Shade Room got an exclusive sneak peek!
In the latest “Drip Codez,” host Thembi got to look into Shereé’s SHE By Shereé showroom to see what the reality TV star has been working on since 2008.
I’ve been working. It’s a lot. I know it’s taking forever […] this is the brand, 14 years in the making without selling a thing.
In a crevice of her chateau, Shereé shared with Thembi that the fashion line is only here because of the demand from fans.
Every time I try to get out of it, I’m like, “okay, I’m not doing it anymore,” they’re like, no!
SHE By Shereé Website Crashes
On Sunday, after the RHOA shared footage of Shereé’s highly anticipated fashion show, the CEO launched its online store, however, the website crashed. The frazzled HMTL was due to what Whitfield described as “overwhelming interest” and an “influx of love.”
A statement on the homepage read:
“Dear Fans, Due to the overwhelming interest in She by Shereé the influx of love is crashing the website‼️ But please understand its being worked on so continue to check back in within the next 24 hours. “We are working to get this quickly resolved. We wish to serve you soon. Thank you for your interest. Thanks to the customers whom we were able to serve so far tonight.”
Fans Accuse Shereé Of Using Shein & Amazon Items
Some social media users accused Whitfield of ripping off fast fashion online retailer Shein shortly after her launch. The accusations were sparked by a gray two-piece athleisure set, being sold by Whitfield for $130 on her website before the site apparently crashed.
Fans on Twitter claim the set is similar to ones sold by Shein, and Amazon. Sheree has not yet commented on the allegations.
Co-Stars Show Sheree Love
In brighter news, Bravo stars shared their pride and support of the fashionista for finally launching the line. Kandi Burruss shared in a clip from the show how excited she was for her co-star.
“She pushed through, she pulled through and got it done,” Burruss, said. “I’m very proud of her.”
Andy Cohen also shared his support but showing of his own She By Sheree hoodie, which appeared to be customized with her logo, in a tweeted photo, adding “I got mine…”
