The Tria collection is a series that the brand has being doing and Danielle’s designs will be the second round in which collaborations are stemmed from the question, “If you could design three pieces that you always wished you had in your closet, but could never find, what would they be?”

Danielle’s collection will be released in November, in which the maroon off–the-shoulder sweater dress and white classic button up Brooks where’s in her Insta post will be shop-able. The actress is very excited about her first embarkment in the fashion industry and partnership with Universal Standard stating that the brand is “truly one of a kind” and “what makes them unique is that they are pushing the 67% (plus population) to be a part of the whole.”
