Last night, I got the chance to meet fashion designer Rachel Roy and talk to her about her new line, RACHEL Rachel Roy that's available exclusively at Macy's, macys.com, and on rachelroy.com. The collection is hip, fresh, and young. I love all the pieces that I really can't decide what I want. But I did pick a few items on my wish list which are at the end of this post.
I got a chance to talk to Rachel (I was so nervous!) and I asked her what her inspiration was in creating this new line.
Here's what Rachel Roy said:
"I wanted to do a collection for younger girls that had the same sensibility as my designer collection but edgier, younger and faster. Something that went with the trends more than my designer collection. For me, it's so much fun because I put on a different hat coming into the RACHEL Rachel Ray studio -- it's super creative. The graffiti was done by my Creative Director's brother-in-law so it's a joint effort, a real family. We get inspired from art, the streets, urban youth, girls from London, girls from Asia. It's a really good energy in that studio. I love it!"
After standing for a few hours, the models had some fun and got down to the music at the close of the event.
Here's my photos on flickr from the event.
Here are some fab pieces from the RACHEL Rachel Roy Collection.
Top Row: Sleeveless Velvet 24 Hour Dress ($139), Printed Jacket ($149), Faux Fur Vest (sold out), Bottom Row: Button Front Short Jacket ($139) with Lucero Black Shredded Denim ($99), Ruffly Printed Tunic ($79) with Ruched Leggings ( $79) with Printed Puffer Jacket ($139) with Croco Print Denim ($89)
I'll have to go back to Macy's to try everything I want on!
