Rebel Wilson, funny lady and former ELLE cover star, is designing a clothing line.
She’s partnered up with Torrid, an American plus-size clothing company, to create a 25 piece collection. It will be available in sizes 12-28 and promises to channel Rebel’s spirit as well as style through everything from koala prints to microphone-shaped charms. Well, you didn’t expect it to be staid and serious, did you?
‘I've had a 'torrid' affair with buying clothes all my life,’ says Wilson. ‘I've never really felt like there's a brand out there in the plus size world that is creating cool stuff, that fits well and is good quality yet affordable. It's really only been in the last few years that I've seen companies try. So it was awesome to team with Torrid, who I think are doing such a great job in making plus size fashion relevant and dope. I've been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection. I've been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can't wait for the collection to launch!’
Talking about her style in the May issue of ELLE, Wilson said, ‘I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense but I am getting into it now. It’s becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.’
The collection will launch in November and will be available to buy online – so UK fans will be able to shop it with ease.
