Fashion is one of the simplest ways to introduce yourself. It makes a statement and leaves an impression whether you are wearing bold prints, muted shades, or dazzling jewels. It tells people who you are, or who you want to be.
Actress Gabrielle Union utilized fashion in the same way—to make an introduction. While Union is already a well known celebrity for her numerous acting roles, she recently launched a fashion line with New York & Company called The Gabrielle Union Collection. Centered on everyday looks, Union told BET that she wanted to create something inspired by her “day to day life” and her “actual, real closet.” Union tailored a line around what she likes, what she wears, and what she genuinely uses, thus introducing herself as a designer who creates pieces that anyone can wear.
