L.A.-Based Decorator Kelly Wearstler Adds Fashion Designer to Her Resume



kelly-wearstler-fashion-line-bigYou may know Kelly Wearstler as an interior-design maven and extravagant fashion enthusiast (who can forget her outlandish outfits and hats on Bravo's Top Design?), but it seems she has her taste-making sights set much higher than your couch or coffee table. Hoping to translate her eye for design to the fashion realm, Kelly will be launching a collection this fall that includes clothes, jewelry, clutches, and scarves. Wearstler thought it would be a smooth transition because "so much of my influence in interior design comes from fashion and everything relating to fashion, from jewelry, which can be reminiscent of sculpture, to the colors and silhouettes that I find in clothing." The crossover influence of interior design is definitely apparent and purposeful throughout the collection: "it feels like it could be a few rooms in a house." The collection is exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman for fall, and will be sold in a special space designed by Wearstler herself. Sharing in Wearstler's point of view won't come cheap, though—price points range from $205-$1,395 for clothes; $155-$995 for jewelry; and $795-$995 for bags. (WWD)
