If you recognize Jordyn Woods from nothing else, you may remember her from E! network’s short-lived Life Of Kylie, where Woods could often be found cheering on her BFF and fellow fashionista, Kylie Jenner. What you may not know is Woods, who could easily be described as cute and curvaceous, also dabbled in a modeling career years ago after signing to Wilhemina modeling agency. In 2016 she walked in a show for Christian Siriano for his Lane Bryant collection and she’s also modeled for ASOS.
But Woods skills aren’t limited to the catwalk, she also knows her way around a designer’s studio as well. In 2016 she designed her first collection with Boohoo.com. For her latest project, she’ll be teaming up with Addition Elle, a brand she’s collaborated with once before, to make the coveted grunge style of the 90’s affordable. The 90210 capsule collection is inspired by our favorite students of West Beverly High, Brenda and Brandon Walsh, Donna Martin, Kelly Taylor and Dylan McKay of the popular teen drama Beverly Hills 90210.
Bustle reports that the collection from the plus-sized, Canadian brand will feature 90’s fashion favorites including slip dresses, crop tops, bodysuits and oversized jeans (if you need more of a reference think Halle Berry in Boomerang or Alicia Silverstone or Liv Tyler in any Aerosmith video).
The 12-piece collection will be available on websites beginning April 9 and is available in sizes 12-26 with prices ranging from $32-$125.
Last year while promoting her first collaboration with Addition Elle, Woods shared with Refinery29 that while she doesn’t want to spend her life living in someone’s shadow, she doesn’t necessarily need the spotlight either:
“I want to have my own lane and do my own things. I wouldn’t change anything [about my life] for the world, but I do think it’s my time to just do me and not live in someone’s shadow.”
“I don’t necessarily want to be in the spotlight, I just want to be successful in whatever it is I decide to do.”
The “Love and Legend” collection featured 15 pieces also inspired by 90’s fashion trends. At the time, Woods expressed that fashion should be experienced differently by everyone and how important it is for people to be able to find role models in fashion and entertainment, especially in today’s political climate:
“You should be able to own it and own who you are.”
“We’re all born different. [Beyond] there being a traditional model and plus-size, there’s also short models, tall models, trans models, models of all different colors and races. I feel like everyone’s different and needs [a] role model they can look up to, especially in this [political climate].”
“We’re all kind-of against what’s happening, even nature is against us right now so [with] something as simple as getting dressed every day, you should feel like there’s options.”
