As most of you know, all you have to do to be able to call yourself a “fashion designer” these days is to… have a hit song. Or be a TV presenter. Or appear on a reality TV show.
The latest celebrity to take the “I can sing, so by God, I can also design!” route into the fashion world is the UK’s Diana Vickers, who, you may or may not know, appeared on X-Factor a couple of years ago, and although she didn’t win, she did do pretty well out of it, scoring a record deal and a musical. And now a fashion line.
These items are from the Dee V by Diana Vickers line for Very.co.uk, and despite our cynicism towards celebrity “designers”, we must admit, we were a lot more impressed with these items than we expected to be. In fact, there’s a certain bird-print skirt which could just have our name on it, and that’s not something we expected to be saying when we first heard about this line.
This is all pretty standard, current-trend stuff: we have the 70s flares, the 50s skirt, the midi dress, the animal-print playsuit… but it looks rather nice, and the prices are reasonable, so we’ll be interested to see how it develops.
