Drug lord El Chapo to foray into fashion with clothing line


Notorious drug lord El Chapo, who was convicted last month, is foraying into the world of fashion with his own clothing line, slated for release this summer. Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, signed a contract from his cell in a Manhattan federal prison recently, which grants the rights to his name and signature to a limited liability company (LLC) headed by his wife and former beauty queen, Emma Coronel, reports CNN.

The company, under which the clothing line will be launched, is officially named El Chapo Guzman–JGL LLC.

He was convicted on drug-related charges last month after a three-month-long trial. Guzman was found guilty on all 10 criminal counts- including those on money laundering and distribution of narcotics like heroin-against him by a US federal court in February.
