Michele Holly McArthur’s passion for high end designer fashion started in high school. The more she wore, the more she loved being chic. Before starting her fashion merchandising education, she spent a short time as a cosmetologist.
While there, in 1998, her unique flair was recognized by appearances in several magazines and international hair shows.
In 2000, she combined her two loves by opening a clothing boutique offering salon services in the setting of a clothing boutique. A year later, Michele expanded her business in size and selection adding young contemporary designer wear and premium denim.
Her personal designing talents first emerged in 2002 with her one-of-a-kind creations. Shortly after, Michele launched her Vintage T-Shirt line which attracted international sales including Selfridges of London.
Michele’s next success was the launching of her first website in 2003. Her fashion forward approach, designer selection and taste for premium denim resulted in worldwide sales. It wasn’t long before her website was touted on the pages of numerous magazines including Star, Celebrity Living and Jolie.
Before long, Michele’s talents were noticed by celebrities. Letoya Luckett, Vivica Fox, Lisa Raye, Lil Mo and Tiffany of 106 and Park, to name a few, benefited from Michele’s fashion styling expertise. Will and Jada Smith’s hit TV show, All of Us, has also utilized Michele’s fashion abilities. BET’s Spring Bling featured her Vintage Line.
Michele is proud and enthusiastic to introduce Holly, her incredible new clothing line. Holly offers simple, sexy, versatile silhouettes made from light, comfortable modal fabrics along with specialty pieces with leather accents. Her new line offers something for everyone.
