Rachel Zoe’s Surprisingly Affordable Design Plans
A new Bravo show, The Rachel Zoe Project, is not the only thing Rachel Zoe has up her stylish sleeve. Between styling stars like Jennifer Garner, Cameron Diaz, Joy Bryant, Debra Messing and more, the stylist extraordinaire is planning her own handbag line. With two collections for Judith Leiber under her belt, Rachel is ready to give it a go on her own. Her vision for her line is to create something that encompasses her own personal style. “Anything I do will always have vintage inspiration,” Rachel tells PEOPLE. “It’s the music I love, the clothes I love, the accessories I love and the icons I love from that time period [’60s and ’70s].” Currently, Rachel’s designs for Judith Leiber sell upwards of $800, but with her own line, that won’t be the case. “My number one goal is to bring a fantasy element to reality and make things affordable for people within any budget,” says Rachel, who counts London’s Topshop and H&M among her favorite places to shop. We can’t wait to get our hands on some of her deisgns. Products are expected in 2009, but no dates have been finalized. Tell us: Would you buy a bag by Rachel Zoe?
