She played "The Karate Kid" and was a "Million Dollar Baby," so it's no surprise that Hilary Swank feels right at home in sportswear. Now the two-time Oscar winner is branching out and creating her own line of athletic apparel.
WWD reports that Swank is teaming up with the DMA Designers Management Agency for the collection, which she will work on with the help of a fashion designer. The former competitive gymnast had initially considered just doing a T-shirt line that "provided motivation and inspiration," says DMA co-founder Marc Beckman, but instead opted to expand it to an entire line. “Our platform is a contemporary, outdoor, athleisure brand,” Beckman says.
Meanwhile, Vulture reported in November that the 36-year-old "Conviction" star is also developing a fashion-themed game show for the CW network. The still-untitled series will feature fashionistas being tested on their style knowledge.
Release dates for Swank's clothing line and CW series have not yet been announced.
