EXCLUSIVE: 11 Honoré And Danielle Brooks On Teaming Up For Their New Luxurious, Plus-Size Collection
At the top of 2022, actress Danielle Brooks, most well-known for her roles in Orange Is The New Black and The Color Purple, dazzled the internet with her very fashionable wedding. Her wedding photos instantly went viral, and many were eager to discover the designer behind her stunning dress. After showing the girls how to master bridal fashion, Brooks is back with her next fashion move. The award-winning actress has most recently teamed up with the luxury plus-sized fashion brand 11 Honoré to co-create a special capsule collection.
“For me, fashion is a trend, and style is personal. It’s a reflection of who we are,” Brooks tells ESSENCE. “With this collection, I wanted to honor the women who have influenced who I’ve become by naming pieces after them: my mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and daughter.
Altogether, Brooks worked closely with her stylist, Kelly Augustine, and 11 Honoré’s lead designer, Danielle Williams Eke, to create a collection that pushed the boundaries of what we’re used to being offered in the plus-sized fashion category. “I want women to feel sexy, comfortable, and tasteful while rocking these looks,” says Brooks.
