"Moving into apparel was a natural next step for me,” Gorga, who launched a jewelry line with HSN in 2014, tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Fashion and styling is something that I have always enjoyed.”

Gorga hand-selected the labels she will feature, including Elizabeth & James, Derek Lam, and Jay Godfrey. “Over the past several months I have been meeting with brands and visiting showrooms to pull together a mix of some of my favorite designers,” adds the Bravo star, who will also launch an e-commerce website by the end of the year.

The new business venture is a family affair. Melissa’s husband, Joe, 41, a developer, "is helping build out the interior to really bring my vision for the store to life with beautiful trim work, elegant lighting, and lots of textures,” says the mom of three. "I am designing the boutique to feel like you are stepping into a closet that's warm yet contemporary.”
