Kierra Sheard’s dreams of becoming a clothing designer have officially come to fruition, but not without the gospel singer facing her fair share of challenges. Nonetheless, Sheard says she’s holding onto her faith so God can get the glory for her Eleven60 fashion line.
The 28-year-old singer-turned-entrepreneur debuted pieces from her fall and winter plus-sized collection Eleven60 at www.MyEleven60.com earlier this summer. The singer told The Christian Post that her line combines quality and stylish garments for more than just women in church, but everyday women who wear size 10 and over.
As a judge on the BET reality TV gospel singing competition “Sunday Best,” fans of the singer and the show will see her wear pieces from her new clothing line. But Sheard explains to CP that the road to premiering her Eleven60 pieces was fraught with hardships.
The daughter of Grammy award-winning singer Karen Clark Sheard of the gospel music group The Clark Sisters, and Bishop J. Drew Sheard, has had to support her passion project with her own finances. Still, she insists that God has been showing her His divine provision in the process.
“Honestly, I haven’t had every dollar that I needed to make this happen, but I’m learning the providing side of God,” says Sheard to CP. “I’m not at my parents’ house anymore, so He is providing everything. Every bill that has been due, I’ve been able to cover it because God has given me money out of nowhere.”
