'Colored Girl' can be someone viewed as beautiful

Jackie Christie, multi-talented, fashion designer, author and model, has released her new clothing line, 'Colored Girl', and her third book "Proud to Be a Colored Girl". The approach of this double launch and much anticipated clothing line is to instill the feelings of self worth, beauty and equality in all women.

Jackie's line will launch first with designer eco friendly 100% organic cotton t-shirts and accessories, and later followed by a hip relaxed and fun denim collection. Her line will be available initially on-line and in stores located in Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA; and Atlanta, GA. "This limited release is done by design to ensure that women will come together more to get my pieces if my clothes are not widely available at first," Jackie comments.

Christie's line will be competitive with other designers such as Free People, Ed Hardy, and the environmentally conscious.

"I design with my heart and emotions, whatever I am feeling. I start there and I move with the vibe, not against it," says Jackie Christie.

"The motivation behind 'Colored Girl' clothing is to instill a strong sense of pride, self love and equality in women, of all ages. The age old stereotype is that colored stands for African American women, but in actuality every nationality of women the world over has a color to their skin. No matter what that color is, a colored girl can be someone viewed as beautiful. I want to remove the stigma," says Jackie Christie.

The proceeds from her clothing line as well as her new book will serve to support single mothers and impoverished families all over the world, through her and her husband's (NBA star Doug Christie) Infinite Love Foundation. Proceeds will also benefit the literacy programs in Seattle, Washington.

"There are so many causes I'm involved with. My true mission in life is to lend support to the underprivileged and suffering. To try to bring about positive change in not just the world, but also the environment. To be honest, it is very difficult to narrow it down to just one cause," expresses Jackie Christie.
