Just because you are a famous celebrity who has had massive success and a dedicated fan base doesn’t mean you can make it as a designer. Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez or Eva Longoria. They all had failing design lines despite the fact that they are all extremely popular and famous women. Tracy Taylor, the U.S. editor of NET-A-PORTER.COM explains it’s not as easy as it looks. “I almost think it’s more difficult for a celebrity to launch a clothing line. Honestly, the eyes and ears of the world are on them. Not only are the eyes of the customer on them, but the eyes of this rarified group that almost is unattainable for celebrities and that’s to be a fashion designer.” But some women have figured out the trick and have made successful career transitions into the world of a design. So with it being the end of New York Fashion Week we thought we would celebrate their success and look at their accomplishments. Here are 7 celebrities who have become successful clothing designers.
