Fort Worth Chef Tim Love has proven himself to be a multi-industry entrepreneur. It is of course known for its restaurants. But love is as much a show as a restaurant. Now the Fort Worth celebrity chef is becoming a fashion force with a sincere heart with his new Love collection.
Bringing his new fashion line to life, he is teaming up with longtime collaborator and personal friend Marcus Hall – designer and founder of small-batch artisanal brand Mark Nelson Denim. Together they believe they have designed a collection that is “modern, edgy and timeless.” Craftsmanship and high-quality denim are an integral part of the hall’s life,” the release said.
Tim Love has a big personality and a studied messy style that started years ago when he first added merchandise to his website – his e-commerce store called Love Bodega. Then, modern cowboy clothing was added to Chef Tannahill’s sleek shop in the music hall. Now Love has launched a redesigned website to coincide with the first line of the new Love collection. It is both premium and limited edition. The fashion line includes locally made clothes and accessories.
“I love cooking and hospitality, all about taking care of people and giving them the best possible experience,” Love said in a statement. “But I don’t let one idea of who I am or what I can do limit my imagination.
“Over the past few years, I’ve decided to double down on my creativity and work on projects that I’m passionate about. The Love Collection is a further evolution of that.
