    • It seems rapper Big Sean is launching a ‘fashion lifestyle company’ by the name of Aura Gold. Included in the fold is a (what else?) clothing line, ‘Finally Famous,’ which will feature staples like varsity jackets, hoodies, and t-shirts. Big Sean seems to have had fun approving mock-ups from his team of designers for this project: “Launching my own label is a dream come true for me,” he gushed, “Even though I have a lot to learn about fashion and the industry, I do know what I like and the small details that make something stand out to me. I look forward to evolving the line with more colors, fabrications and offerings to show the other dimensions of my style progression over time.” The label is set to be unveiled during a Big Sean appearance the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for ProjectMVMNT.

[He] has a number of projects in the works with Vogue and Condé Nast, and maintains a warm relationship with both.” We’ll see! (YBF via NYP)
