Fashion designer Rachel Roy made a special stop in Miami this past Saturday, hosting a special fashion event at the Macy’s at the Dadeland Mall. When I hit the second floor of the Macy’s woman’s fashion floor, I was greeted by an awesome DJ mixing cool music, a mini runway with impromptu models, and Ms. Rachel Roy herself, signing autographs and talking with customers. Behind her were racks and racks of her clothing from her new Fall line that required great restraint on my part not to buy them all! I had the awesome opportunity to talk with Rachel about her line and fashion designing! Here’s what I learned:
Her fall pieces take cues from her original and the latest trends. She wanted to create clothing that is trendy, sophisticated, and sexy. Designing with a team that wear the clothes they design helped make that possible! The key for her when it came to her clothing was that a woman can be smart and sexy without having to show off everything!
Her Favorite Fashion Item
She loves to wear a trench coat, especially as a dress because of its versatility. It’s something she can wear to an interview or to church.
Her favorite thing to design
When it comes to a specific fashion item, the top pick was dresses. When it came to designing in general, she loves designing for the particular woman she has in mind. She told me the most important thing in designing is making a woman feel good about herself!
A new venture
She is currently working on designing furniture, pushing her creativity to a new level. I can’t wait to see that!
She was super sweet and looked gorgeous! I definitely send out a special thank you for taking the time out to speak with me!
Also a special thanks for my wonderful husband who braved that crazy Miami traffic to get me down there and for being an awesome photographer!
A post dedicated to some of the fabulous clothes she had this event is coming up real soon! I promise!
