Brooke Burke-Charvet launches activewear line

Workout apparel is front and center in new line from Brooke Burke-Charvet

Brooke Burke-Charvet is planning to meet customers at Nordstrom at the Grove on Saturday to celebrate the launch of her new athletic and lifestyle apparel brand Caelum.

The line includes performance tops, sweat pants, pull-overs and sports bras that promise style and comfort during workouts. Caelum is an acronym for words that define the brand: core, active, evolve, live, uplift and motivate.

Saturday's event begins at noon and is to include a 15-minute Body Burn class taught by Burke-Charvet. The former "Dancing With the Stars" co-host will also meet customers and autograph photos.

It will take place on the second floor of Nordstrom at the Grove, 189 The Grove Drive. For more information, call the women's active wear department at  (310) 276-7500.
