Tracee Ellis Ross is turning her hand to fashion design with her debut clothing collection – a capsule holiday line for J.C. Penney.
The actress and TV host has teamed up with the department store chain on Tracee Ellis Ross For J. C. Penney – a limited-edition capsule collection of womenswear, accessories and home decor items.
The star took to Instagram to share the news directly with her 3.8 million followers, posting photos of herself posing in some of the partywear-inspired pieces she has created for the brand.
“I’m soooooo excited to announce that I’ve partnered with @JCPenney to create a holiday collection that I hope empowers women to embrace their joyful spirit,” she wrote.
“Each piece was imagined and designed by me!” she added.
Launching on Nov 12, the collection includes 30 womenswear pieces, with highlights including the sequined pink ‘Glow Dress’, a slick ‘Heaven Tux’ jacket and a body-con ‘Kindness Dress.’ The collection is inclusively sized, with options ranging from small to 3X.
It has been a busy year for the actress, whose sitcom Black-ish returned to ABC for its fourth season this month.
She has also had plenty of modelling work, starring in Kenzo’s Spring/Summer 2017 ad campaign alongside Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams and musician Kelsey Lu. – AFP Relaxnews
