Nasty Gal launches collection with RuPaul's Drag Race UK star Tayce
Womenswear retailer Nasty Gal has unveiled a collaboration with RuPaul's Drag Race Series 2 star Tayce, featuring over 60 "glam rock inspired" items.
The Manchester-based fashion company, originally founded in LA, has joined forces with the Welsh drag queen for her first ever collection, released online today.
The collection features items including dressing suits, blazer dresses, vests and graphic tees adorned with some of Tayce’s iconic Drag Race phrases. The drop has also dived into Nasty Gal’s archives to unearth one of its first leather jackets, which has been given it an update, and included it within the collection.
The collection from Nasty Gal is one of the first campaigns in the UK to exclusively feature a drag queen, blurring the lines between fashion and gender and allowing free expression of LGBTQ+ individuals.
TheIndustry.fashion has curated a gallery of the collection:
Speaking about the joining Nasty Gal, Tayce said: "I see the future of drag everywhere. It's become so mainstream now, more so than it was before. Here I am doing an edit with Nasty Gal, I mean if that isn’t progression for drag queens I don’t know what is. I think it’s going to be all over the place, in fighting games, in wrestling rings, all over pavlova.
"For me to be on this Nasty Gal campaign wearing this good s**t… B**ches are gonna GAG. It means everything, baby."
Available in sizes UK 4 – 16, with prices ranging from £4 to £110, the capsule collection is available now.
