Award-winning gospel singer Kierra Sheard’s foray into full-figured fashion design looks promising.
Among her growing base of supporters is former “Glee” star Amber Riley, who calls pieces from the Eleven60 collection “dope.”
While modeling a black leather outfit from the line on Instagram, Riley raved about the clothing in front of her more than 500,000 followers.
“I love everything,” said the Season 13 Dancing With the Stars winner, who participated in a photoshoot for the brand’s forthcoming fall launch.
Showing her appreciation for the love, Sheard posted an Instagram video featuring Riley and her photographer, and wrote, “So much fun with my sister [Amber],” adding, “She’s been so supportive of the clothing line.”
Through the introduction of stylish and modern plus-size clothing, 27-year-old Sheard is hoping to inspire other curvy women to “embrace their thick”—something she has not always been able to do.
“I once hated so many things about myself,” Sheard said in a separate message on Instagram.
But now, according to her, she has chosen to love “all of what I’ve added to myself along with (primarily) all that God has given me.”
