“Being Mary Jane” star Gabrielle Union has new title to add on her résumé, fashion designer.

Union has new collection with New York and Company and it’ll be sold in the retailer’s 335 full-price stores beginning August 16. Union will design three collections for fall and spring, followed by multiple collections in the proceeding years.

When asked about the line, Union said “I wanted to offer on-trend fashion at affordable prices. That’s the bottom line.” After talking to her family and friends about her wardrobe, she said there has to be a way to create fly, dope, on-trend, fashion-forward pieces for a much lower price. This is a great move for the actress who is making her way into the fashion industry. She is changing the game for African-American women and showing that you can dress cute and affordable at the same time.

We are proud of Union and can’t wait to see her new collection with New York and Company releasing August 16.
