Sportswear brand Fila teamed up with Emmy winning actress Susan Lucci to launch a collection of Pilates and fitness apparel that will be sold exclusively on the HSN home shopping network. 

Lucci started working with HSN in 2000 with the launch of a jewellery and fragrance line, and has since expanded into a multi-million dollar business, which includes skincare, fitness, fashion and accessories. 

She says it was a natural progression to work with Fila on an apparel line to complement her Malibu Pilates programme, which has sold more than 44,000 units since its launch in September 2008. 

The figure-flattering collection offers an inventive twist on traditional athletic apparel.
