Usher to launch clothing line

Singer Usher is expanding his resume to include designing his own clothing line.  He will be styling his line on the formal designs of Prada, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli.

Usher said, “You know what, to be perfectly honest with you, I’m really a suit man, if it’s not Prada, it’s Gucci, Roberto Cavalli.  I’m really into Italian designers as well as American designers; as a matter of fact I’m heading in that direction.”

Usher doesn’t have a date for the release of the line, but says it will be out in 2006.  He is on his way reaching his goal to create an empire a la Russell Simmons and Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs. 

He said, “Look at the capabilities of Martha Stewart or Russell Simmons or Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs or even 50 Cent with G-Unit. Look at what they did with their licensing.  This is my opportunity to do the same. Clothing and shoes are kind of the standard nowadays, so I’m trying to figure out how I can come at it from a different angle. Watches, clothes, perfume, cologne, facial and acne products. There are so many possibilities.”
