Singer/Model Cassie Debuts her Streetwear Clothing Line "EN-WHY2EL-AYE" in Collaboration with LA Streewear clothing line YOUNG & RECKLESS!!
Bad Boy Recording Artist & Model, Cassie Ventura can add one more accomplishment to her resume, Fashion Designer. Casandra “Cassie” Ventura stepped on the scene to debut her self-titled album in 2006 at the ripe old age of 20. Cassie’s natural beauty and talent, landed her in front of the camera lense where she quickly entered the world of modeling and is one of the most recognizable faces in pop culture, producing some of the most electrify editorial spreads around. Cassie current venture has her teaming up with popular LA streetwear brand Young & Reckless. The name she chose is so fitting for the young talented beauty which is “EN-WHY2EL-AYE” and reads (NY to LA).
I had the pleasure of viewing the clothing line in person at the Young & Reckless Showroom in LA January 24th. The staff members were genuine, engaging and informative. They offered glasses of champagne and a goodie bag with some of Cassie’s streetwear items inside.
The collection features all original art designs which are hand drawn graphics created by Cassie herself. The collection consists of tees, sweatshirts, hoodies, and a varsity jacket to die for! The entire line is black and white, with the exception of one special tee with accents of gold. The one accessory that she produced is a black and white flask ready to be filled with your libation of choice!
The spring collection Cassie created is bold and sexy with urban-hood and a hint of skater vibe. Each piece is different from the next and makes a statement all ages are sure to enjoy. As I examined the material for each piece, I was really impressed with the texture of cotton they used. The clothing was noticeable soft to the touch and well-crafted for comfort. While viewing the line I learned that Cassie’s collection is made in the USA, and the price points for the line are extremely affordable. Nothing in the collection is over eighty five dollars and the t-shirts all start at thirty dollars.
The line is definitely street worthy, edgy and innovative as they come. She really incorporated an element of class and feminine touch as well. The hand drawn graphics she implemented really is the winning element to the collection. It’s like you’re getting something personally signed by Cassie herself. Brilliant idea!
Cassie's street wear designs hit the internet on Monday January 27th 2014. All of her pieces will be sold exclusively on the Young & Reckless website. If you think that was it for Cassie, wait until early fall when she drops her fall/winter collection. This girl is truly on fire, first the music industry, then an impressive modeling career and now the fashion world. Cassie Ventura is only just beginning, it seems everything she touches turns to gold!!
