“Detroit is where I got my start and coming home to unveil my first collection since receiving national recognition is a way to pay homage,” says Underwood. 

“PINK PUMP and Wanda Grace are kindred spirits in the passion for entrepreneurship and ventures that empower women to be the best they can be. Hosting my unveiling there is a perfect fit.”

Kelly Kirkwood, the CEO of PINK PUMP, is excited to host the unveiling of the Wanda Grace Collection because she believes that Underwood’s work empowers women.
