GABRIELLE UNION SET TO LAUNCH PLUS-SIZE CLOTHING LINE
Actress Gabrielle Union announced that she will be launching her very own clothing line called Love & Blessings by Gabrielle. Union decided to cater her line to plus-size women after realizing how difficult it was for her sister to find fitting and flattering clothing. In an interview with AOL’s Blackvoices.com, Union also added:
“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.” [ SOURCE ]
She hopes to launch her line in the summer of 2011 on the Home Shopping Network (HSN).
