A work wardrobe for female hustlers.
Get ready to be a devastatingly chic black woman at work because Actress Gabrielle Union will launch her own namesake collection exclusively at New York & Company this August.
Under the 7th Avenue Design Studio, a sub-brand within New York & Company that includes chic dresses, modern suiting, and versatile separates, Gabrielle Union’s first fashion collection will be inspired by her hit show, Being Mary Jane.
For all those who haven’t been watching the show, Gabrielle’s character, Mary Jane Paul, apparently embodies the “New York & Company” customer. That is, the career woman who needs easy and effortless styles that are polished and on-trend.
“Mary Jane’s style reflects power, leadership, and risk taking. She wears classic styles but with a twist, which is why I think she’d definitely shop at New York & Company,” Gabrielle explains.
Greg Scott, the CEO of New York and Company says that “Gabrielle’s collection will be unlike anything our customers have ever seen from us. Adding her brand to our portfolio will strongly appeal to our loyal clients and will also attract new customers to our brand. It will be significant to our growth strategy in 2017.”
The launch of this partnership is a “whole new game” for Gabrielle. Unlike other actresses who have dabbled in side projects, Gabrielle has literally stayed true to her craft and consistently releases new films and tv shows.
She shares, “I am excited to work with a brand that’s known for embracing diversity and that caters specifically to women—especially women who want to look on-point without breaking the bank. I can’t wait to show everyone what I’ve been working on!”
