Erin Wasson: A Model Designer
As well known for her downtown-cool style off the runway as she is for her glamorous career as a supermodel, Erin Wasson is adding a new line to her resume — designer. The model launched her new line Erin Wasson x RVCA, in collaboration with design line RVCA, in London last week, with the affordably-priced line already flying off the shelves of chic boutiques including Opening Ceremony and Colette. Wasson says of the capsule collection, “As a model, stylist, and designer I have been inspired by the places I visit and people I meet.” For her debut spring collection, she was “inspired by the streets of New York City and the beach culture of Southern California.” And as if being the face of Maybelline and appearing in fashion magazines all over the world was enough fashion cred, the model has been moonlighting as a stylist for pal Alexander Wang’s runway shows in New York. Check out the collection, which runs between $50 and $250 at lagarconne.com.
