Rebel Wilson Teams Up With Torrid to Launch Plus-Size Fashion Line
Rebel Wilson is making a foray into the fashion world, starting with her very own collection. The Pitch Perfect actress is working with plus-size retailer Torrid to design a limited edition line to be released to the public later this year.
Wilson released a statement about the upcoming line, saying (quote via PEOPLE), "I’ve had a ‘torrid’ affair with buying clothes all my life. 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. 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.”
Despite telling Elle UK that she is "the type of girl with no fashion sense," Rebel is clearly excited about the collaboration. She said, "I’ve been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can’t wait for the collection to launch!” PEOPLE goes on to report that Wilson's collection will include a koala t-shirt as well as microphone-shaped hardware, among other things.
In an interview she did with Elle UK, Wilson recognized the importance of having a plus-size clothing line for women who look up to her. She said, "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.”
Wilson's line is scheduled to be available in stores and online beginning in November.
