Mandy Moore Shuts Down Her Clothing Line Mblem

After almost three years, Mandy Moore’s clothing line Mblem is shutting its doors. The contemporary line launched in 2005 and was frequently spotted on the singer-actress-designer. Though her first foray into fashion is over, Mandy still hopes to try her hand at fashion again one day. “I love the fashion world. I’m fascinated by it. I’m humbled by it,” she said tells WWD. “If I were to dip my toe back in there, it would have to be the right situation… a great partnership that could represent a true reflection of me and my ideas and you know that wasn’t happening. So next go round, that needs to be top of the list.” As for now, Mandy is getting back to her roots and concentrating on her music career, releasing Amanda Leigh, a California ’70s-inspired pop album, on May 26. Though we are sad to see Mandy leave fashion, we can’t wait to hear her latest music.

Damn Economy…now even millionaires are losing money…what a shame

that line of her sucked anyways, i’m honestly shocked that it lasted so long

Prianka on

I didn’t even know her line was still producing clothes at all. I guess it did better than I thought. Oh well, Mandy seems like a nice girl, hopefully her music will get better now that she has one thing to concentrate on.

I do love Mandy as a singer / song writer…. but I don’t know why celebs have it in their heads that just because they are well known in their craft, they are entitled to a *clothing line* or *fragrance*. People study and prepare for such fields for years, they are not mere *perks* that come along with fame. I am never suprised when these fly by night endeavors fail.

Sorry to hear Mandy Moore’s fashion line, Mblem, shut down, but I wish her the best with everything.

Wow behind that sweet face is a money grubbing celeb who will trash people for her own benefit. Shocking.

Katarina on

She’s a lovely girl, a lot more than I can say for you grumpy, whiny evil cynics.

Stella on

Good luck to her. We need more positive role models like Mandy.

Marcy on

Last time I checked, I didn’t have a clothing line, and I’m sure none of the other people who made unfair comments didn’t have one either.

Nicole on

A new album? Yay! Her last two have been great imo.

kellyamareta on

Thank you.

sooooo, in other words, your clothing line sucked and didnt make any money? mandy is cute, but she’s a bit dull and needs some pizzaz.

I have never seen any of her clothing line. However, if the thing she is wearing in this photo is one of her pieces, it’s no surprise she’s shutting it down. It looks like it is inside out-the fraying is not enough to look intentional- just looks like crappy stitching and cutting, The colors are a little drab. The cut not very flattering as far as what little we can see. I can’t believe she posed for a photo in this dishrag. Best of luck to her, I think music is a better bet.

I saw Mandy perform several songs from her new album at Hollywood’s Hotel Cafe in September; they’re absolutely incredible. She has completely reinvented herself, and I think that, if launched correctly, this new album could send her career in a totally new direction. Remember, she’s still really young – 26, I think. To have tried a fashion line at all at such a young age is impressive; she has a good head on her shoulders.

alyssa on

wow her line suked and way too exspensive for something that didnt even catch ur eye!!!

ali on

mandy moore rox i want her shop to stay open. SHES AUSOME!!!

michaela on

KC- wanting success and growing into different ventures doesnt make you “money grubby” she’s ambitious and has goals for herself just because she is a singer/songwriter and an actress it doesn mean she should stop their the sky is the limit and she should do whatever makes her happy for one, and celebrity or not riches or not i dont think putting a limit on oneself or stopping at one place is healthy…thats how people grow by expanding their horizons…

and she wasnt trashing anybody for her own benefit i dont understand your comment…

i think mandy is a sweet person and i only hear positive things about her theres no need to trash her.
