The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed.

Jordin Sparks' perfume

Jordin Sparks is launching her own affordable perfume. The 20-year-old singer has revealed she decided to create the scent titled Because of You, because she thinks celebrity perfumes are too expensive for ordinary fans.

“When I was starting this project, I really wanted it to be affordable. I looked at some other celebrity fragrances, and they were like $80. Even now, I look at a fragrance that’s $80, and I can’t bring myself to spend that much. In this economy especially, my fans deserve a high-quality, reasonably priced scent.”

Target Recruits Zac Posen to Design Line

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Fashion Designers, News, Sales,

Zac PosenSpeculation concerning the economic stability of Zac Posen’s label emerged amidst the lay-offs and announcement of a lower-end line. Posen seems to have found a solution that many other designers have opted for as of late: a diffusion line.

Posen is set to collaborate with Target, which is not necessarily a new team-up—Posen previously designed a one-off collection for Target Australia, which he claims to have done for the free trip!

With Rodarte’s Target line hitting stores next month and Jean Paul Gaultier’s collaboration in March, Posen’s will not be available until April 25. Torturous, I know, but at least we’ll have time to recover from Fashion Week!

Excited for Posen’s line, or plain sick of the cheaper products?

Christian Louboutin Turned Diffusion Line Down

Christian Louboutin, shoe god

Even though it seems as if everyone is doing a diffusion line for either H&M, Target, or other major retail chain, there’s one designer who is counting himself out: Christian Louboutin.

While he’s happy to shell out his time and effort for Barbie, it seems as if the shoe designer has no other collaborations in mind: “They [H&M] proposed me to do the diffusion line and I declined… Not that I don’t think it’s an interesting idea, but it’s a lot of work really, so it’s just difficult for me to do it.”

When asked about whether he would consider such a project in the future, my dreams of purchasing an affordable pair of his godlike creations were crushed. A girl can dream, eh?
