Back in InStyle's July 2021 issue, Telfar Clemens, alongside the cast of one of his favorite TV shows, The Real Housewives of Potomac, put on a glamorous photo shoot to launch his collaboration with Ugg. Now, the ever-growing brand has launched a television channel, TELFAR TV (available on Roku and Apple TV). To celebrate the launch, we're sharing some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the Telfar x Real Housewives weekend.

TELFAR TV will stream fan-made videos and other content like this for free. Throughout the videos, you will find QR codes that make it simple to shop the brand's bags (its new duffels can only be purchased this way). So there's incentive to watch other than just watching Telfar frolic with his new BFFs.

This shoot took place over two days in Maryland, where Clemens spent the majority of his childhood, which explains why Potomac is his favorite Real Housewives franchise. He was joined by Candiace Dillard, Robyn Dixon, Ashley Darby, Mia Thornton, Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, and Dr. Wendy Osefo from the show, who were glammed to the nines and decked out in Clemens' designs. The group performed morning exercises, took pole dancing lessons, held a QVC-style fashion show, threw a pajama party, and hosted a Champagne reception with up-and-coming pop stars Carrie Stacks and Ian Isiah. You'll see some of the wives wearing sequin gowns, while at other times, they traded in the sparkles for bike shorts, leggings, and UGG x Telfar boots.

At one point, Dillard — some of you Bravo fans may know her for this season's salad-tossing gate — joined Isiah at a white grand piano to riff and make up songs on the spot. "Music is, like, in my sternum," she tells the camera during a confessional.

Later in the video, the pole-dancing lesson commenced with the girls, models, and Clemens himself taking turns. And of course, the weekend wouldn't have been complete without some drama between the ladies.

"There is some sort of tension between some people," Dixon informed the camera, with Thornton adding, "I'm turning this shit upside down."
