Draya Michele says she is ‘proud’ to co-design with PrettyLittleThing… after Kourtney Kardashian and Hailey Bieber modeled for the brand first
Draya Michele has co-designed a new collection for the UK-based fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing this week.
Images of the model in the designs were shared with DailyMail.com on Tuesday where the Basketball Wives Los Angeles star – who used to date singer Chris Brown – was all dolled up in tight dresses while outside a mansion in the desert.
A string of big name stars have already modeled for the brand including Kourtney Kardashian and Hailey Bieber.

‘You know when you meet people, and you just connect with them right away? That’s how it is with the PLT team. I’ve been working with them for over a year now and when the idea came up to co-design a collection, I couldn’t say no,’ said the star.
‘Our pieces are sexy, stylish, and very on trend – be proud of who you are and what you have! I can’t wait for everyone to try them.’
The 37-year-old social media personality looked toned in the new styles as she worked her moves for the camera.
Michele sported a body-hugging mini dress with high-heeled shoes and added elements of shine to her clothing ensemble with sparkling hoop earrings. And she also wore a small top and shorts.
Her beautiful black locks were worn down over her shoulders.

Michele has notably worked as a designer in multiple fields of the fashion industry in the past.
The model spoke to BET earlier this year and discussed her second collaboration with jewelry brand 8 Other Reasons, with whom she had previously released a line of accessories.
The performer lauded the original launch’s success and told the media outlet that ‘we decided to bring back some of the pieces that did really well in the first collection.’

‘We also added in a lot of new pieces that have different colored jewels, which is something we didn’t really play with the first time around,’ she said.
Michele went on to express that she was especially excited about working with gemstones in different shades.
‘As women of color, metallics look great on us. Nonetheless, chocolate-colored gold is something you haven’t seen from a lot of jewelry companies. It’s a little twist on gold that’s gonna look nice on all shades of brown,’ she stated.

The model then briefly spoke about her swimwear brand, Mint Swim, and noted that many executives at retailer Pac Sun, who carries the pieces, had grown confident in her abilities as a designer.
‘They already love my designs, so they give me the creative go-ahead to do what I want to do. They trust me,’ she said.
When asked to comment about her future projects, Michele kept her answer short and sweet, stating: ‘I’m excited about a lot of things that I’ll share with you soon.’
She has two children, Kniko Howard and Jru Scandrick.
