Fans of today’s celebrities are not only interested in what their upcoming projects are, but who they’re wearing. Fans like to copy their favorite stars’ looks, from their hairstyle to the clothes they wear. One way to do this, of course, is to keep up with who’s wearing what. But sometimes fans are lucky enough to not only wear the designers the stars are wearing, but to wear designs created by their favorite stars.
It’s becoming more and more frequent for celebrities to design their own fashion collections. Stars who have had collections for a long time now include Kathy Ireland and Jacquelyn Smith. Selena had released her own clothing line just before her tragic death. And nowadays, it seems a new line by one famous celebrity or another is popping up every season. Today’s celebrity fashion designers include Brittany Spears, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, and Jessica Simpson.
This is not a new trend, nor is it only a few years old. Celebrities have been designing clothes since Esther Williams started her own line of bathing suites during her time with MGM. Depending on the star you’re looking for, you may find one or two designs at labels that have been around forever, such as Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy, or a star who has launched an entire collection, such as Jessica Simpson, who released a full collection of clothing, shoes, intimates, luggage, and other products.
But in the fashion world, a star’s name on the label may not be enough to see it fly off the racks. The fashions have to look good and be trendy for buyers to seek it out and purchase it. Of course, there will be those customers who buy something simply because of the star’s name on the label, but most shoppers are still going to want something they would actually wear to go along with that name. Each shopper will have her own opinion, and no two may be alike.
