EXCLUSIVE: Gabrielle Union Joins The Fashion World...& Readies Her Own Clothing Line!

The world of celebrity clothing lines is far from coming to an end.  Gabrielle Union spilled the tea exclusively to TheYBF.com about her brand new fashion venture.  Read on for the deets...

Gabby Union is dipping into the fashion world.  And at Sunday's Montblanc John Lennon pen launch event in NYC, she let it slip that her newest project is nearing completion.  She's readying her own clothing line, tentatively titled "Love & Blessings by Gabrielle."

"It's not completely solidified yet so I shouldn't really be talking about it.  But it's been 4 years in the making."

But we still managed to squeeze out her inspiration behind the line.  The "FlashForward" actress tells YBF:

"My sister is very full figured.  And she's constantly telling me how going out is so hard.  Mainly because it is so difficult to find clothes that look great for her size.  'Everyday' black women don't have much to choose from when looking for designers who will fit their bodies. So I want to make clothes for women at any and all sizes that look absolutely great on them."

Gabby, who admittedly loves shopping at Target for some of her clothes, says her goal is to make amazing clothes for as many sizes as possibe.  And will keep it all at a great price point.  She tells us she's currently putting the icing on the cake for the line.  And she's hoping to go the HSN/QVC route to sell it.

Sounds like Ms. Union is ready to give folks something new in her life to talk about.  And we always praise a YBF owned side hustle.  Will you be buying?

You bitter women need to go

You bitter women need to go spend as much time and energies you waste on these celeb (who are, RICH and living LIFE with all they want and desire) and start focusing on ways of making your lives more comfortable and meaningful. If you do, you wouldn't find the time to judge people and showcase your jealous ways. The more time you spend thinking of a person, the more energies they gain; the more envy and bitterness you express, whether to yourself or others, the more negative energies follows you. Now who wins? Surely not you!

Well good luck to her, having

Well good luck to her, having a successful brand/line in this day and age requires more than innovative design. That said, she's in for a rude awakening if her statement is any indication of her mission. Designing clothes for all of the various shape/sized women of the world is almost impossible. You have to have a target market, albeit full figured or not, whom you cater to........you just can't be all things to all people it's impossible. It's no secret that style wise, she's no maven so at best if she was really smart, she'd stick to being an investor, pay the talent to design, produce, and sell while being the "face" of the company. You don't need any experience to be a "smart" investor, just an opportunity.

Sigh. Why? Gabby is very pretty but is in no way shape or form fashionable. Something is always off about her outfit (usually the shoes), or the dress is just too grandma-ish. I guess we'll all just have to wait and see.
