Refinery 29 is reporting that Amar'e Stoudamire and fashion designer Rachel Roy are joining forces on two of Roy's fashion lines.

Connie Wang reports, "As long as I remember, I always did something with my clothes. I would slice up the bottom of my jeans so that they would look different. I would change the design of my shirt and add an extra layer. I would wear two different tennis shoes," said Stoudamire.
