Pro ballroom dancer Val Chmerkovskiy gathered all of his ‘Dancing with the Stars’ pals last night for the launch of his new clothing line Valentin.
Among well-wishers who turned out at Phillippe Chow in Los Angeles were his current celebrity dance partner Elizabeth Berkley and her husband Greg Lauren, Jack Osbourne, Cheryl Burke, Brant Daugherty, Tony Dovolani, Leah Remini, Valerie Harper, Tristan MacManus, Maks Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Peta Murgatroyd, Sharna Burgess, Jonathan Cheban and Kyle Massey.
The 27-year-old Ukrainian-born dancer describes his new line as a higher end urban street-wear couture brand. He posted a photo of a stockroom filled with bolts of fabric to herald the debut of his new business venture
He described the image, “What started out as an idea and some fabrics is now a full blown clothing brand. Excited to say that after tonight’s launch showcase party, @valentine_nyc will be officially live and running. ValentinNYC.com #streetcouture #frombrooklyntomilan #worldwide”
Chmerkovskiy tweeted early this morning, “I’m blessed beyond any words or metaphors. The love and support that I felt tonight from people I love and admire so much meant the world.” He added, “It was all a dream. I used to read GQ magazine… and now it’s official!!!”
