If it was today, I would not have gotten fired — because we would have a UPC code for all of the products!
Zarin is now the owner of Zarin fabrics, as well as an author and star of Bravo’s hit show, “The Real Housewives of New York City.” She learned from her early experience of getting sacked and is now adding “Fashion designer” to her resume, teaming up with Triad Hosiery to create Skweez Couture, a line of sexy and innovative shapewear.
