If you’re not familiar with Kelly Wearstler’s Sportswear Collection, it may be because you haven’t been following the Interior Design scene where she has been a major player for the last 15 years. In fact, she has had a home design shop on the 7th floor at Bergdorf Goodman’s since 2007, in addition to designing their restaurant. It was their encouragement for Kelly to expand her talents in accessories first, a natural from home but also into apparel that she launched her first contemporary collection in August of 2011. As it was obvious that both of her talents were playing well off of each other, Bergdorf’s then established an apparel/accessory shop on BG’s 5th floor. She has also opened a complete lifestyle store on Melrose in L.A., her home turf.
This talented lady who has always taken much of her inspiration from her love of photography has book author as another title to add to her repertoire of design titles. In fact, she has a new book, Rhapsody, debuting in October.
Her apparel look is very modern, edgy and creative as the photos below and her runway show at Tootsies illustrated.
