Vanessa Simmons Launches New Swimwear Line

Heavy Metal, Vanessa Simmons' favorite piece from her new swimwear line Rose by Vanessa Jean.


What’s your favorite piece from the collection and why?

My current favorite swimsuit from the line is called Heavy Metal. It’s a one piece cutout that is completely embellished.

What’s your role with this line? Do you come up with some of the designs yourself, do you stick with the business and marketing side or is it some combination of both?

I am back and forth with duties. Everything from business and marketing, down to the designs. Of course I have a magnificent team who is my support and I honestly could not do it without them. Team work, makes the dream work for sure! But I most definitely like to be hands on. This new company is like my baby.

How did ANTM alumna Dani Evans and FUBU founder Daymond John get involved with this project?

I am very blessed to have Daymond John as a partner and brand manager on this project. He has been instrumental helping me navigate my way and helping with the general direction. He has helped give my project light, majorly. Dani Evans has been a dear friend of mine for quite some time now. So when I hosted a model search here in Los Angeles a month ago, I knew she would be perfect in helping judge the finals.  It was awesome. She was so inspiring and such an encouragement to the girls.
