Why Celebrity Goes Designer

  • Pin it

And here I was, day after day, wondering how far and how many more from the celebrity lines will join the designer ranks…

Now I know why there’s hardly a day passing by without a new fragrance by an actor/singer, a new furniture or home decoration signed by a songbird or big/small screen star, and of course, a new line of clothing, a new collection of something signed by one of our beloved celebrities.

Tom Ford Cfda Gala
Here’s Tom Ford’s moment of wisdom without moderation at the CFDA gala where he won the Menswear Award:

“I used to be an actor before I was a designer – I was never a good actor as you saw, which is why I became a fashion designer. But it was fun.”

Sooo, taking things logically – if you’re bad at what you do, forget acting, dancing and singing and go designer! At least you gave it a try!
