Former Basketball Wives LA star Draya Michele made the right choice to leave the reality TV series. She had enough of the Jackie Christie antics, and we don’t blame her.
These days, Draya Michele is becoming a fashion mogul with her million-dollar swimsuit empire. Read on…
CelebNFashion247.com has the latest on Draya Michele and her poolside fashion line that has blown up since she hung her reality TV hat.
You might say, Draya Michele is doing way better these days! Michele launched her first of now three clothing brands. Mint-Swim, a swimwear line designed with “all shapes and sizes in mind.”
Here is what Draya had to say to Refinery29 on how she started her Mint Swim brand:
“I saved up $12,000 and I invested it completely into my company.” She explains that Mint Swim is all about women who “want to feel sexy and enhance all the right curves while staying fashionable.” Draya adds, “I started with four styles of swimsuits and from there, things just grew via social media.”
Draya admits that “being on reality TV didn’t hurt her career. If anything, it helped immensely. The former modeal/BBW’s star has grown a great deal, she she’s no longer interested in being sexy.
Instead, she is focused. Michele explains:
“It’s important to show people that I am versatile. I can still have the same sex appeal in clothing. I’m not afraid to cover it up. I used to think that I were fully-clothed that I wouldn’t get likes, or people weren’t going to pay attention to me, but that’s not the case.”
Draya, who supports the American economy, has her factory based in Los Angeles. These days the non-traditional clothing creator says:
“I’m constantly designing and producing stuff, so when comes out, I’ll put it out. If Selena Gomez feels like wearing [our swimsuit], which has happened before, it’s going to sell out in probably 14 seconds. But I have the ability to make 3,000 more.”
