Amare’e Stoudemire Teaming Up With Rachel Roy To Produce Fashion Line
(NY Post) — Amar’e Stoudemire is getting into the fashion business — the Knicks’ power forward is launching a clothing line with designer Rachel Roy, sources told Page Six. The insiders said the line will be a part of Roy’s contemporary label for Macy’s, Rachel Rachel Roy, and is being planned to launch next fall. Althought details are still being squared away, we hear the collection will be for women. Stoudemire and Roy were seen last week having dinner at clubby West Village eatery The Lion, possibly hammering out details of their collaboration. The future business partners met at an event during New York Fashion Week in September. Stoudemire has had his size-15 foot in the fashion world since arriving in town after he signed a $100 million deal to join the Knicks. During Fashion Week, Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour personally invited the 6-foot-10 NBA star to the Fashion’s Night Out runway show at Lincoln Center.
