Whoopi Goldberg is expanding her business opportunities to things other than a host of ‘The View’ and marijauna-focused products. The actress has revealed that she will soon be launching her own fashion line that will be size inclusive.
Calling the line Dubgee, Goldberg’s new collection will span ready-to-wear separates with a focus on contemporary design and comfort. The pieces will run up to a size 3X and will also be retailed on Amazon, Le Tote, Neiman Marcus, and Ashley Stewart.
“This is as serious to me as anything else I’ve done in my life,” Goldberg told Business of Fashion. “The first thing you should communicate is, ‘I like me.’ I think the motto of the company is, ‘The last thing you should ever fret about is what’s in your closet.'”
The daytime talk show host has been teasing a few of her fashion line’s pieces on her Instagram as well as ‘The View.” She now joins the long list of celeb who have decided to jump into the fashion world like, Rihanna who just announced that she will be the first woman to create a luxury brand within the LMVH group.
Beyonce most recently relaunched her Ivy Park fashion brand with the sportswear giant Adidas, in addition to creating new apparel and footwear pieces for the brand. Earlier this month it was revealed that the country singer Dolly Parton had also signed a multi-year deal with IMG with a view to developing a lifestyle line incorporating fashion, jewelry and accessories.
