Danielle Brooks Set to Unveil Fashion-Forward Clothing Line


Danielle Brooks has collaborated with Universal Standard on a clothing collection for curvy women.

The Orange Is the New Black actress has added the title of fashion designer to her resume with a new venture in partnership with the plus-size brand, which covers sizes 10-28.

Announcing the venture on Tuesday (12Sep17), Danielle took to Instagram to post a photo of herself wearing a crimson off-the-shoulder knit dress over a white shirt.

“THE DAY HAS COME I’m designing @universalstandard’s new Tria Collection!” she gushed in the picture caption. “Beyond excited about this collaboration with this amazing brand! You’ll soon be able to shop this look and a few others. Can’t wait to show you more. For now, stay tuned! If you don’t already follow them on IG – do! #USxDB #Tria4US#nowyoucan #voiceofthecurves Check out link in bio.”

The line will be available to purchase in mid-November (17) and is part of Universal Standard’s initiative to encourage women to design three pieces of clothing which they wish they had but can’t find.

“The reason I chose Universal Standard to be the first company that I design for is because they symbolize the fact that all women, no matter their shape or size, want and deserve to wear beautifully made, fashion-forward clothing,” Danielle told PeopleStyle. “They stand for everything I believe in!”

The design seen in her social media snap can be dressed up or down according to the occasion. Also on offer is a statement poplin dress, inspired by Solange Knowles’ personal style, and a pair of overalls, a “no brainer” choice for Danielle.

“For years I have looked for a pair of overalls that weren’t too baggy in the crotch, that presented some type of wow factor and that weren’t too long in the body,” she explained. “This one will be sure to satisfy every woman who has felt like me.”
