With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.Shop Now
Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down.

For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.Shop Now
A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.Shop Now

A casual, sexy choice, off-the-shoulder tops have unique necklines that cut across your upper arms and chest, leaving your shoulders bare. The result is a flirty flash of skin, which elongates your neck and gives a relaxed, "daytime casual" look. Our Nola off-the-shoulder top pairs perfectly with shorts or even a flowy skirt and is hand-woven in Spain using Jacquard fabric.Shop Now
Who doesn't love a good tank top?! Tank tops are lightweight, versatile, and equally great for lounging in the yard or running errands on weekends. Tank tops lend an air of simplicity to your outfit and can be styled in endless ways. Take our Velvet Heart Victory Tank, for instance.

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements.

Two years ahead of its planned opening, J&J has committed to a suite at Fujifilm Diosynths Biotechnologies’ 1,000,000 square-foot manufacturing site in North Carolina.Fujifilm began construction on what it describes as “North America’s largest, most sustainable contract development manufacturing organization (CDMO) facility” ...
Two years ahead of its planned opening, J&J has committed to a suite at Fujifilm Diosynths Biotechnologies’ 1,000,000 square-foot manufacturing site in North Carolina.
Fujifilm began construction on what it describes as “North America’s largest, most sustainable contract development manufacturing organization (CDMO) facility” in 2021 at a cost of $2 billion.
The site will initially boast eight 20,000 L bioreactors across two large scale manufacturing suites when it opens its doors in October 2025, though it has the potential to house another 24 x 20,000 L stainless-steel bioreactors as demand arises.
While still two years out, the CDMO announced yesterday it has secured its first customer at the site: Janssen Supply Group, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), which has entered a long-term agreement to fill one of the suites to support its clinical and commercial pipeline.
“This commitment recognizes the innovation and expertise that Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies is uniquely positioned to deliver,” said Toshihisa Iida, chairman of the CDMO. “Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies is in the process of increasing capacity more than five times through a commitment of up to $7 billion in manufacturing capability across Europe and United States.”
Beyond the $2 billion Holly Springs project, Fujifilm has committed $1.6 billion to augment the current 240,000 L of capacity at its Hillerød, Denmark site acquired from Biogen in 2019 for $890 million.
The CDMO has also invested in its small-scale biologics and advanced therapies network – particularly in Teesside (UK), Triangle Park (North Carolina), College Station (Texas), Watertown (Massachusetts), and Thousand Oaks (California) – as it looks to separate out its small- and large-scale biomanufacturing units in a recent strategy shift.
The announcement of J&J’s residency came on the same day Fujifilm hosted a site unveiling celebration for the Holly Springs plant.
“Today we acknowledge a great milestone achievement by the team of more than 2,500 full-time employees, contractors and skilled-trade workers who have been, and will continue to play a key role in meeting the increased demand for life-impacting therapeutics,” said Lars Petersen, who took over as CEO of Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies earlier this year.
“What we are building in Holly Springs, utilizing our modular approach, allows us to increase speed and reduce risk in all processes from construction, validation, ramp up, tech transfer and in manufacturing, enabling us to deliver medicine to patients at speed.”

Holly Springs, NC, and its beautiful neighborhoods, golf courses, shops and microbreweries offer would-be residents a perfect blend of small town Southern living, high-speed fiber internet access and proximity to the many amenities of one of America’s most appealing metropolitan areas.
Located less than 30 minutes from the urban vibe of Raleigh and Durham, which along with nearby Chapel Hill comprise North Carolina’s well-known Research Triangle, Holly Springs is close to U.S. 1 and Interstate 40. Holly Springs has caught the attention of many families looking for a smaller city with a Southern flavor — one that’s close to big cities, while still remaining just far enough away to promote a slower and quieter lifestyle.
Indeed, over the past few decades, Holly Springs’ population has ballooned to more than 46,000 as of 2023, and is now North Carolina’s 24th largest city. And with a wide variety of things to enjoy just in town, it’s easy to see why so many are attracted to Holly Springs!
Though not a major city itself, Holly Springs’ internet is as fast as its larger neighbors, thanks to its fiber-optic broadband service. Delivered and maintained by Ting Internet, a company that serves several states, Holly Springs’ fiber internet is extremely fast, delivering reliable internet at speeds up to 1 gig per second for streaming, gaming, and business activities online.
Read on to see why so many families and business have decided to call Holly Springs home!
In This Article
Nestled in North Carolina’s central foothills, Holly Springs was named for the cool waters that make their way through deep aquifers and past ancient holly trees that have withstood the test of time. Around these lush, green surroundings, Holly Springs began as a little more than a crossroads in the Carolina countryside. Over the past few decades, however, it has steadily grown into a small city with a full complement of amenities.
Home to one of the world’s largest flu vaccine manufacturers, Holly Springs’ economy and job market is booming. As a result, its many small businesses are also flourishing, with new shops, restaurants and microbreweries popping up in town and the surrounding area every year. Indeed, Holly Springs’ craft brewing scene is hopping, with one of the state’s first female-founded microbreweries residing in town!
Families can also find fun and adventure in Holly Springs. The city boasts the 37,000-square-foot Daniel Dhers Action Sports Complex, the world’s largest family-oriented action sports facility. There, thrill seekers can test their mettle at BMX, skateboarding and several other action sports. Or for a totally different experience, explore your artistic side at the Holly Springs Cultural Center, which houses a local theater for performances and displays a variety of visual arts.
Holly Springs is only about 30 minutes away from two great North Carolina cities — Durham, and the state’s capital, Raleigh. Home to Duke University and North Carolina State University, respectively (as well as other colleges and universities), Durham and Raleigh are great college towns. They teem with arts and culture and have venerable athletic traditions that attract legions of fans. Their stunning campuses are both vast and verdant and both are dotted with phenomenal architecture to explore.
Raleigh is also home to the North Carolina Museum of Art and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. These award-winning institutions are terrific ways to spend a rainy afternoon, and they’re easily reachable from Holly Springs. Raleigh and Durham are also notable regional culinary destinations, with many international restaurants in both cities. Several acclaimed restaurateurs and chefs now call the Triangle home, where they regularly showcase their talents in the kitchen.
There are practical advantages to being close to Raleigh and Durham, too. The area has exceptional health care facilities, including WakeMed Health & Hospitals, a major hospital system spread across multiple campuses in the region. Raleigh-Durham International Airport is just over 20 minutes away from Holly Springs and serves many U.S. cities and foreign destinations.
Of course, many people are attracted to more than just great restaurants, breweries and city streets to stroll. Residents often settle in Holly Springs due to its proximity to some of central North Carolina’s excellent outdoor recreation areas.
Less than 20 minutes away is Jordan Lake State Recreation Area, a state park offering a wealth of open-air activities. Located along a nearly 14,000-acre reservoir, its 15 miles of hiking trails provide countless chances for bird watching and soaking in the fresh air. Jordan Lake is home to a summer population of magnificent American bald eagles, which always impress even the least interested birdwatcher. Fishing, boating, camping, and many other activities are available to visitors.
Within Holly Springs itself is Bass Lake Park, a 54-acre lake that’s stocked with catfish, among other species treasured by anglers. Several trails meander throughout the park, with plenty of opportunities for hiking, jogging, canoeing, kayaking or simply enjoying nature.
With more than 30 golf courses nearby, Holly Springs is truly a golfer’s delight. Two private clubs, 12 Oaks and Devil’s Ridge, are in town, offering challenging courses that also revel in the stunning scenery of the area. With two dozen more courses within a 30-minute drive of town, golfers will have plenty of fairways and greens to test themselves.
When you’re online, whether at home or at work, you’ll also enjoy incredibly fast fiber internet in Holly Springs. Ting Internet provides speeds of up to one gigabit per second so you can stream your favorite channels, play online video games, catch up with friends and family through video calling, hold video conferences, and upload large files in mere seconds.
Best of all, fiber’s faster speeds and greater bandwidth capacity means that multiple people can use their devices simultaneously, whether for streaming TV and movies in different rooms at home, or video conference calling at the office. Fiber’s faster speeds and higher bandwidth also reduce pixilation, buffering and lag while streaming or gaming, and greatly enhance productivity and efficiency for businesses.
From Holly Springs’ country heritage and scenic surroundings, to its thriving microbreweries and eateries, to its proximity to the Research Triangle, families will be hard-pressed to find a small Southern city with as much to offer. And because Ting Internet’s advanced fiber network is so fast and reliable, families can stay easily connected to their family and friends anywhere else. Check out Holly Springs for yourself!

HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. (WGHP) — Dave’s Hot Chicken is spreading across North Carolina, and it looks like they may soon be in Triangle.
On Friday, the company confirmed to FOX8 that the popular chicken chain will soon open its fourth North Carolina location at 114 Grand Hill Place in Holly Springs. Doors are expected to open by the end of the year or during the first quarter of 2024
The brand, which launched in 2017, is known for its “jumbo” hot chicken tenders and sliders. They offer seven spice levels ranging from “No Spice” to “Reaper,” which requires a signed waiver.
Arman Oganesyan, Dave Kopushyan and brothers Tommy and Gary Rubenyan opened their first Dave’s Hot Chicken location—or rather its first parking lot pop-up—in May 2017 in East Hollywood, California.
“Dave’s Hot Chicken has one of the greatest origin stories in the restaurant business, with the founders starting Dave’s as a parking lot pop-up restaurant in Hollywood with a portable fryer, and picnic tables from their backyards,” said Dave’s Hot Chicken’s CEO Bill Phelps. “The company’s nearly unheard-of growth rate is a result of the founders’ vision for this brand, the tremendous leadership team we’ve assembled, and the incredible commitment of some of the most experienced franchisees in the restaurant industry.”
In May, Technomic named Dave’s Hot Chicken “America’s Fastest Growing Restaurant Chain” for 2023 with systemwide sales increasing by 156% in 2022 over the previous year. The company plans to open more than 70 new locations in 2023 and boasts more than 700 locations “in the development pipeline.”
On its website, the company lists locations in 28 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. It also has locations in Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

New FUJIFILM site praised for hopeful contributions to medicine
Hundreds of employees and company leaders celebrated in Holly Springs Tuesday for the unveiling of the new FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies (FDB) site. Additionally, the company announced Janssen, a Johnson & Johnson company, will be its first tenant once it opens in 2025.
This comes roughly two years after its groundbreaking back in 2021. Now, CEO and president Lars Petersen says we’re seeing what the final product will look like: 7 buildings spread across nearly 1 million square feet.
WRAL News Brief
“This is so exciting, because now you see the entire outside, finished, as it will look when it’s done,” Petersen said.
The new $2 billion facility will be the largest end-to-end cell culture contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility in North America and will house state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical manufacturing equipment and technology including two large-scale manufacturing suites, according to the company. In other words, it will be a place for everything from drug substance manufacturing to packaging, assembly and labeling.
FDB already has a site in Morrisville, where its team with Novavax during the pandemic to produce a COVID-19 vaccine. Petersen calls the new site ‘medicine at a bigger scale,’ which differs from its current Morrisville location.
“The difference between [the] RTP site is more the scale…What you see here…it’s really medicine at bigger scale. For many patients, it could in the future be Alzheimer’s medicine, but it likely will be in the beginning, oncology medicine or autoimmune disease. What you see in RTP is much more early-stage programs or smaller volumes that require smaller equipment,” he explained.
FDB owns 150 acres of land in Holly Springs for the project. WRAL asked Peterson how many companies could move into the new facility.
“That really depends on the volume of medicine and it could be many; it could also be very few,” Petersen said.
By the end of 2028, roughly 725 jobs are expected to come from the project. Job postings on the company’s website show they are currently hiring for positions in its Holly Springs location.
“This area alone, we have about 75,000 trained employees for our industry. That mattered a lot when we had to position the facility and decide where to go,” Petersen said.
Tim Forrest, Holly Springs town council member, sent WRAL this statement:
“I am thrilled to hear about the announcement regarding Janssen Supply Group, a Johnson & Johnson company, joining FujiFilm Diosynth Biotechnologies Holly Springs.
FujiFilm Diosynth Biotechnologies Holly Springs has been an excellent community partner with the town and will continue to bring positive opportunities for the growth, development, community opportunities, jobs, and strength for the commercial tax base. As Holly Springs continues to build and grow the Life Science & Bioscience projects, the positive impact to Holly Springs will continue for generations to come.”
