From singers to designers

So celebrities who wear unique and outstanding clothing is one thing, but celebrities who design cool and chic clothing is totally another thing. In the last couple of years, celebrities have been managing to create side businesses for themselves. As if a career in music, movies and tv shows is not enough, they decide to sell, create, and market various products. Everything ranging from shoes, bags, perfumes, etc. And now its even clothing. Hillary Duff will be co-designing a line with Donna Karen of DKNY, Victoria Beckham came out with her new line of clothes that are touched with a sophisticated edge. Beyonce and her mother teamed up to make clothin magic with their self titled line “ House of Dereon” Nonetheless, the biggest name that has been circulating fashion week has been, Justin Timberlake. He debuted his new line titled “William Rast.” Apparently, he began this line a few years ago with a childhood friend and business partner, Trace Ayala. The name William Rast comes from the combination of Timberlake’s and Ayala’s grandfather’s names. They drew their inspiration for a newer and fresher look since the election of president Barak Obama. Timberlake said that because it’s a new start to our American culture, he wanted to express that through his clothing line of William Rast. I think its quite admirable that celebrities are not only triple threats these days, some are even quadruple threats by being designers, business men and women, ambassadors and what have you. Just some food for thought.
