Television stars Vanessa and Angela Simmons are starring in WETV’s “Growing Up Hip-Hop.”
Hear what cast members had to say about the upcoming season, premiering on WE TV this Thursday, August 29, 2019.
On Wednesday, Style 360 hosted their annual fashion showcase during NYFW. Style 360 has hosted several events over the years and are known for being one of the prime spots for NYFW shows and festivities, as they bring designers, brands, models, celebrities, artists and media together each season to network and celebrate fashion and style.
Along with providing venues for dazzling events and for designers to display their work, they have collaborated with many celebrities and entertainers in the past and this season they partnered with Angela Simmons to debut the launch of her new clothing line Bonnie Bouche.
Bonnie Bouche is a women’s clothing line by designer, philanthropist, actor and producer Angela Simmons. Angela first came in to the spotlight as the daughter of legendary rapper, DJ Run from 80’s Hip-Hop group RUN-DMC. Angela has always had a passion for apparel, successfully launching her first footwear line Pastry Footwear alongside her sister Vanessa Simmons in 2007.
Her fashion ventures did not stop there and she has been dedicated to feeding her creative interest in fashion. Since then, she has created a faux-fur line Foofi & Bella as well as collaborated with VIPE Activewear on an active wear line for women. With Bonnie Bouche, Angela says she this new line focuses on millennials and young adults as she believes it represents “power, femininity and inclusiveness.”
Bonnie Bouche is a collection of more than 20 pieces, all vibrant in color and interwoven with funky shapes. The line is very relaxed yet playful, and even has a COOGI Sport-inspired colorway that drops this fall in collaboration with COOGI at Lady Footlocker. It is safe to say that this won’t be the last venture for Angela in the fashion industry as she continues to grow as a designer and a businesswoman.
Look out for more Bonnie Bouche this fall exclusively at Lady Footlocker, and in the meantime you can follow the Bonnie Bouche brand on social media: @bonniebouchebrand.

After seeking these three designers out, I just put on a show, putting them all in one and then BOOM!” She also went on to disclose a little bit about her own up-and- coming endeavor of creating her own line, which is in the works now, so look out.
