"We all know rappers love clothing lines, and now actors want a piece of the action. Actress Gabrielle Union is about to tap into fashion. We caught up with Union at the Mont Blanc pen launch with John Lennon this Sunday in NYC. She told Black Voices that she is putting the finishing touches on her latest project, her very own clothing line which will be called Love & Blessings by Gabrielle."The line is inspired by her sister, who is full figured and has a hard time finding flattering clothing. Union intends to change the game and design pieces that will bring sexy back -- to the plus size ladies that is!.
"My sister is very plus-size and curvy," Union told Black Voices. "As with many black women, we have a harder time finding clothes to complement our curves, so I want to make clothes for women at any and all sizes that look absolutely great on them."
Miss Union may face lots of competition in fashion but she intends to keep her price points low while offering great and affordable pieces for everyone, not just plus-size women. Like Mary J. Blige, Union hopes to debut her collection with HSN/QVC. This sister certainly knows how to put together an outfit and her fans will be most likely to cop a couple pieces and look just as fab."
**Personally, I'm not really a fan of Ms. Union, however, I am anxious to see what this line is going to look like. I hope her sister was able to help her create the line:) !!! **
