Angela Simmons has officially launched her new Bonnie Bouche clothing collection. The celebrity mom held a fashion show, sponsored by Sketchers D’Lites, on Wednesday (September 12) in New York City that featured some of her most stylish pieces.
Angela definitely had help with spreading the word about her new clothing line in the person of her son, Sutton Tennyson Jr. The little one looked dapper as he took on the runway beside his mom who was excited as ever to show off her new designs.
The Bonnie Bouche collection is all about empowering women. Through her latest designs, Angela hopes to inspire women to embrace the skin they are in all while appreciating the uniqueness of others.
“I am so excited to announce the launch of Bonnie Bouche which for me represents power, femininity, and inclusiveness,” Simmons shares on her brand’s website. “I hope this collection will inspire young women to feel confident and powerful in their wardrobe so that they can concentrate on conquering their goals.”
Bonnie Bouche offers women more than 20 style options that include clothing for casual occasions as well as workout gear. The collection is set to make an exclusive debut of its Coogi line at Lady Footlocker in coming weeks, which should be nothing short of fabulous.
Angela Simmons’ latest venture in fashion comes at a time when women are encouraged to be healthy both physically and mentally. The fashion designer can definitely relate to struggles with body image as Angela delved into her issues with self-esteem as a young person during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club.
“Growing up, like honestly speaking, when I was younger, I grew up kind of like thicker. They were always small and I always felt like, ‘I’m big,'” Simmons admitted.
“I had a little diagram and I would draw this big person and then draw myself skinny. Like, draw the person I want to be, skinny. And it was like, I had body issues. Growing up, I was concerned that I was fat. I was like, ‘I just feel fat.’ I always had that conversation. I would cry about it. And I would feel like everyone around me was smaller. I just didn’t get it.”
Now, several years later as a mom, Angela understands that all women are shaped uniquely. Differences are to be celebrated and not ostracized. Check out Angela Simmons’ Bonnie Bouche brand here!
