Orange Is The New Black star Dascha Polanco is getting ready to enter into the world of fashion. Known for slaying red carpets, the curvy fashionista knows the struggle for finding designers who can pull clothes over a size 4 is real — and she’s tire of it. Now, she’s looking to join help shake things up by creating her own line.

“I want to design something that’s between plus and between sample sizes—a brand that eventually would market to everyone, to all women, period,” Dascha told Vogue in recent interview. “I think that Hollywood-wise, people that have influence have to start making the change and speaking up. This year I’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes, as far as fashion goes, just meeting with people, collaborating and brainstorming, because fashion is something I will invest my time in.”

There’s no release date, yet, but we are definitely interested in seeing what the fashionista will come up with given her amazing sense of style.

“I’m creative enough, and to be honest with you, I don’t mind work,” said Dascha. “Now more than before, it’s like, ‘You’re not going to make my shit? Well, I’m going to make my own!’.”

We can’t wait.
