No, the trend of celebrities transitioning into fashion designers hasn’t ended yet, and with Fashion Month fully underway, it’s inevitable that a few more Hollywood stars will announce their plans to venture into the designing world. Today’s news comes from Leona Lewis, who has taken her inspiration from Stella McCartney. As a practicing vegetarian, Leona, like Natalie Portman, who used to design a line of vegan shoes for Te Casan, refuses to wear any clothes made with animal products. Hence, she’s launching her own vegan line.
“I’m trying to make that happen as soon as I can. It’s a challenge — mostly with shoes — as I don’t wear any leather and am very ethical about what I wear. I love wearing Stella McCartney, but one day I hope to have to my own line of ethical clothes and accessories.”
Her line still needs a name, but it’s sure to include red carpet options for Leona’s appearances. [Vogue UK]
