The Grammy Award-winner will debut RICH HIPSTER BELLE

Introducing Chrisette Michele: The Fashion Designer

The Grammy Award-winning entertainer is set debut RICH HIPSTER BELLE, a line made especially for curvy girls.

"My goal for the clothing is for it to have universal glam appeal," shared Michele in a YouTube video chronicling the making of the line's samples. "It is all about girls embracing the curves and their ’’ glamerosity’’ and sort of just being comfortable in their glam space so that goes with the type of fabric all the way to the type of colors for it to be comfortable and warm for everyone who puts the clothing on." 

Designed in collaboration with noted fashion designer and stylist Jason Sky, the line will be unveiled through a soft launch at the ESSENCE Music Festival in New Orleans.

"I am really confident in the pieces that were made. They are high quality, they are well made. My biggest thing was that they would fit over girls with that waist to hip ratio that is kind of impossible to find items for."
