SECAUCUS, N.J., May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ashley Stewart®, the leading lifestyle and social commerce brand, is excited to announce today its partnership with DUBGEE – a new clothing line inspired, founded and designed by Whoopi Goldberg.
Serving as the exclusive plus-size-only DUBGEE retail partner, Ashley Stewart is thrilled to be leading the charge to introduce the new collection into the curvy and size-inclusive marketplace.
"Ashley Stewart is more than just a clothing brand. It's a movement, a lifestyle and a broader platform that I'm grateful to be a part of," said Whoopi Goldberg, Founder of DUBGEE. "I'm delighted to partner with Ashley Stewart because their mission to empower women, inspire ambition and strengthen the community really hits home, and ultimately is what this new fashion line is all about. I am proud to say that I Am Ashley Stewart."
After returning from a recent vacation in Greece – her first trip in 20 years – Whoopi struggled to find clothes available in her size, so she set out to create a line of her own. Using colors, shapes and patterns that pushed her own style boundaries, the DUBGEE brand was born. Inspired by the founder's initials "W.G." for Whoopi Goldberg, the new fashion collection empowers and promotes individuality with stylish, comfortable and aspirational products that fit every lifestyle. Meant to be worn, layered and lived in, each garment is created with its ambitious, fun-loving customer in mind. In this collection, Ashley Stewart will carry 27 DUBGEE styles, which includes tops, bottoms, dresses, loungewear and accessories, available in sizes 1X – 3X.
"For thirty years, Ashley Stewart has stood for individuality, strength and fun, so a partnership with Whoopi was only natural," said James Rhee, Chairman and CEO of Ashley Stewart. "We couldn't be happier to welcome DUBGEE into our family and our increasingly influential platform.
The Ashley Stewart X DUBGEE collection is available for purchase May 20th online at AshleyStewart.com. Select Ashley Stewart stores across the country will carry the collection in time for Memorial Day weekend.
