Ashley Graham Launches Debut Fashion Collection At Dressbarn

Model and body activist Ashley Graham has designed her own fashion collection, launching at Dressbarn.

Titled "Beyond by Ashley Graham," the capsule collection focuses on everyday dresses available in sizes 4-24.


"With her first ever dress collection, designed exclusively for Dressbarn, Ashley continues to empower women with her message that all women should have access to well-made clothing that makes them feel confident and beautiful, no matter their shape or size," reads the brand's site. "At Dressbarn, her powerful message translates to the power of the dress."

The summery collection includes a black lace scuba dress, a white and black colorblock dress and a knee-length floral number, as well as a fit and flare white lightweight V-neck dress. Prices range from $48-62.


"I've always been a 'dress girl' and really wanted to create a line that was sophisticated, sexy, and made women feel confident," Graham told Elle.com. It is the first clothing collection for the curvy model, who has been designing lingerie with Addition Elle since 2013.

The project is the latest in a recent string of high-profile career moves for Graham, who hit the headlines in February as one of the stars of the Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit issue. She took to Instagram to announce the news, saying: "It's official - I'm a @si_swimsuit model!! This is a dream come true. Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves -- our voices were heard and together we can help me win Rookie of the Year."

She also landed a role earlier this year as one of the stars of the Lane Bryant campaign "This Body".
