Gabrielle Union has launched her inclusive holiday clothing range.
The “Being Mary Jane” star teamed up with New York & Company for a 51-piece holiday collection, which promises to feature clothes to fit all shapes and sizes.
She said: “If it doesn’t fit right, it ain’t right. That’s what it all came down to. When you’re not doing it right, you’re ignoring 67 percent of Americans who are plus-sized.”
And the 47-year-old actress and television personality says her success in her new range comes from “expanding” the “circle” of her team to ensure all voices are heard.
Speaking at the launch event, she added: “This is where you lead humbly … It’s easy to lead with your numbers and your success, but a better business move is to the center where you are weakest. Center your blind spots. But if you don’t have the right people on your team you’re not going to ever know what those blind spots are … I showed up, I listened and I expanded the circle.”
Meanwhile, Union previously opened up about her personal clothing favorites, revealing she always makes sure that she has a sweater or a knit dress in her closet and she is obsessed with jumpsuits and a “great jacket.”
She explained to PEOPLE: “I’m bi-coastal and travel a lot and they’re the easiest things for me to pack whether I’m in New York or Los Angeles. A jumpsuit is so versatile. I want one for every occasion. You can dress them up or down, and they look good on every body type. Every year I splurge on a great jacket. A good coat can make any outfit look amazing when you walk into a room.”
