Sometimes a celebrity, fashionista, sportswear designer, rock star or iconic athlete feels compelled to expand their uber thriving empire. They want to continue branding there successful image and branch out. Hey and why not!? In our social media insta everything society this is really quite the norm.
And to be completely honest these projects are extremely intriguing and am always flattered to get the phone call that “so and so” wants to design a line of hats made out of recycled garbage or silk and what can I do to help make it happen?
“People will stare. Make it worth their while”- Harry Winston
The dilemma is always the same. These individuals have super busy lives- music tours, shooting schedules, runway shows, training sessions, beauty treatments, families etc. giving them very limited time to create their dream line of hats or handbags. Although it may be very important to them, many times their accessory collections may be kicked to the curb because of these time constraints.
