Vanessa Simmons launched an International Model Search a few months ago for her upcoming intimate apparel line, Rose. Now the actress, designer, and co-founder of the $70 million Pastry brand is teaming up with multi-millionare business man and host of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” Daymond John. Daymond is one of the most successful branding consultants and business moguls today and expressed his excitement to be a part of this project.
We’ve all seen Vanessa grow up in the front of the camera. We’ve witnessed her transformation from a smart girl to fashion expert to a beautiful, savvy business women. She clearly has become an influence to many. With that said, it’s always been my philosophy that the easiest thing to sell is the truth. I’m very excited to assist her in growing her personal brand and continue her transformation into a business leader, trendsetter and Shark both in front and behind the camera.”
John is the CEO of the $6 BILLION fashion establishment FUBU, and is a keynote speaker, author, and TV personality as well. He will definitely serve as a great asset and mentor to help Simmons in her latest endeavor.
Coming this summer, Simmons will debut three different collections for her line: “Rock Your Sexy,” “Naughty Lil’ Princess,” and “Vintage Chic.” It will feature items for every size and shape out there. Vanessa has stated,
An item as intimate as lingerie should reflect who we are as individuals. I understand that every woman is shaped differently -and is different, and that’s exactly what I want to celebrate with my intimate apparel line.”
