Celebrities are renowned for trying their hand at developing fashion lines, but athletes are beginning to make a name for themselves in the industry as well. Recently, basketball player Amare Stoudemire announced that he is in discussions to create a designer line of his own.
Stoudemire, who plays for the New York Knicks, would allegedly have his line be released as a part of Rachel Roy's contemporary collection. Shoppers will be able to buy the brand at Macy's department stores and flaunt the basketball star's couture themselves. Roy and Stoudemire recently met at Fashion Week to conceptualize the line, which would debut in fall 2011.
"I love fashion," Stoudemire said in Page Six Magazine. "I love watches. I love shoes. I make sure that every time I step out of the house, I'm feeling comfortable and fashion-forward. Depending on the occasion, I dress the part."
Rumors are that the line would most likely be centered around women's fashion with plans to expand in the future.
Employment in fashion design is only predicted to rise 1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, wholesale retailers are expected to see an increase in business.
