Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s daughter is getting a clothing line
They grow up so fast.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s 3-year-old daughter, Kaavia James, is forging her own fashion path with a new clothing line in collaboration with Janie and Jack.
While Kaavia may have had help from her famous parents during the design process, Union told Vanity Fair that her toddler has been in fashion “since she could walk.”
“When we designed this line, people were like, ‘How does a child participate in the fashion process?’ But when we narrowed our ideas down between Janie and Jack’s design team and me and my husband, we showed [Kaavia] the French Terry [styles]we showed her the three-tiered ruffles and the prints,” the 49-year-old actress said.
“There were things that we liked her to say, ‘No.’ And we didn’t impose anything on her. If she didn’t like it, that was it.
Launching February 2 on the Janie and Jack website as well as in select stores, the Kaavia James Union-Wade x Janie and Jack collection features tons of bold colors and pays homage to traditional African prints. Priced from $10.50 to $74, it will offer sizes ranging from six months to 18 years.
Along with inspiring and helping design the line, Kaavia also stars in the campaign alongside dad Wade, 40, and models gender-neutral ‘best friend forever’ ensembles with BFF Crosby Sparrow, the son of the actress Nicole Lyn and basketball player Chad Easterling.
Kaavia has always been a style star, often pairing up with her mother and donning designer duds.
“She’s obsessed with our closets…shoes and handbags. It’s about props in my closet and in Dwyane’s closet,” Union told Vanity Fair. “She literally loves climbing up her clothes racks.”
This isn’t Kaavia’s first business deal; she has nearly 2 million followers on Instagram and served as the inspiration for her parents’ picture book, “Shady Baby,” which was released last year.
