There’s nothing like authenticity and creating a brand that not only represents your style, but also has an inspiring message. WNBA player turned designer, Ty Young did just that with the launch of her namesake fashion brand, TY1 Gear. The authentic clothing brand represents expressing and embracing yourself through style. TY1 Gear features a variety of items ranging from apparel, to headbands, and bags. SHEEN had a chance to sit down with the visionary, to find out what it takes to create a successful fashion brand, what’s next, and more.

Tell us about your fashion line TY1 Gear? How do you want consumers to feel when wearing your clothing?

I initially started my line for fans who always wanted to buy my jersey and couldn’t. In order to keep items affordable, I had t-shirts with just my logo. My brand started off with t-shirts and athletic wear. I’m slowly but surely making items for lifestyle wear as well, so stay tuned. I hope for customers to feel free to be themselves and be comfortable in my clothing.
