The media maven and child of reality TV royalty discussed her exciting new venture.
Gigi Hadid has taken the fashion world by storm and has managed to keep social media and paparazzi following her every move for years now. So, it was only a matter of time before the 21-year-old stunner would give designing a try. Hadid spoke People about partnering with Tommy Hilfiger to craft clothes that incorporate all the trends she adores.
“I feel like every girl wants to design clothes at some point, and it’s something I’ve become even more passionate about as my career has developed,” Hadid said. “This was a really nice way to start designing because I could trust in a team that I know is amazing. I could ‘get my feet wet’ creatively and focus on design; it was a really special experience.”
On Sept. 9, Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger will unveil all of the collection’s garments featuring plenty of star patterns, as well loads of nautical and military-inspired jackets, just some of the supermodel’s favorite things.
“A lot of our inspiration came from pieces that I’ve worn myself and that I’ve found at vintage stores,” Hadid said. “We wanted to make special, authentic designs that feel fresh and exciting but also timeless and classic — those are the pieces I am drawn to the most. We kept all of the fabrics and textures really true to our inspiration.”
Hadid, who is frequently spotted with members of the young Hollywood elite, said the collection was also heavily inspired by her close friends and what they’re wearing.
“I feel like there’s a piece in the collection for everyone; I designed it with so many of my friends, family and role models in mind,” she revealed. “I think people will have a lot of fun with the collection and especially the patches; we’ll see a lot of different ways that people are going wear it and that makes me really excited.”
