Perez Hilton is a fashion designer now, creates clothing line for Hot Topic

Perez_hilton_hot_topic

The Fashion Police have a question: can anyone call themselves a fashion designer these days? Like, anyone at all? Because if Perez Hilton’s new line for Hot Topic is anything to go by, it would seem that anyone can, and if that’s the case, it looks like we may have our work cut out for us bringing in the crimes of fashion that will doubtless ensue.

Perez says, "“I talk about clothes all the time on my website. I have a good eye for what’s hot and what’s not.”

Hey, wait! We talk about clothes all the time on our website, too! Hot Topic? Let’s talk! Call us!

We know the picture above doesn’t give you a whole lot to go on, but what do you think of Perez as fashion designer?

    This sort of thing really annoys me. I studied design at uni and it’s hard work. You cannot just say “I know what’s hot and what’s not! – therefore I’m a fashion designer” It shouldn’t work like that. It demeans the industry, the ‘real’ designers and everything that people like myself slogged for 4 years to learn.
    Not to mention the horrendous creations these so called designers come up with. It’s just a marketing trick, which the buying public should be bored of by now.
    OK, enough of my ranting – I’m going to cool off now…

    Yeah, I like Perez and he seems really excited…and lets be honest, Hot Topic is NOT exactly the “fashion world”. But I was a little embarrassed when he broke the news, because it just DOESN’T seem like a wise decision. He does talk about fashion a lot, but he’s not usually right. On the other hand, he has always been VERY colorful in every way, and made a mark for himself as a bit of a fashion icon, way more so than Lauren Conrad, for instance. I dunno, as long as it doesn’t get out of hand, I’m okay with it.

    I hate this guy with a burning passion. I agree with Amelia, I too spent 4 grueling years studying fashion design, and it’s a joke to see someone basically approve of something that someone else made and suddenly it’s theirs- especially when it’s some jerk who’s made his fortune out of the misfortune of others. Leave celebrities alone, and let them live in peace! As soon as the kiddies are over him, his career is toast.

    I dont think its a wise choice for him to do this. He often claims whats hot or not on his site, and most of the time, i wont be agree with him. He just sorta think that he has a ‘quirky’ in a good way sense of style. Well, perez, ure obviously wrong this time
