Valletta Designs, Mizrahi’s Small-Screen Sales, And More…

-------

Amber Valletta is going designer. The model-slash-actress is creating a line for contemporary sportswear brand Monrow. There will be rompers. [WWD]

Isaac Mizrahi is making a “very signature Isaac” line for QVC. We certainly hope it wouldn’t be anyone else’s signature. [WWD]

The fight for the Beatrice continues, to the tune of $23,000 in fines, a new sprinkler system, and an up-for-renewal liquor license. If they do reopen, we suppose this means really pricey cocktails. [Page Six]

The latest in eco-gear is sportswear made from coffee grounds. We’ll take a double tall no foam with soy. [Guardian]

    I’m always confused when models/actresses/singers start designing clothes. It makes it seem so easy and untechnical. What does that make of those who go to four years of school to learn how to cut and sew and design?

    Just a thought.

    Erin Wasson did it last year Kate Moss did it for Topshop and now Amber Valetta. Do they really think they can design?? Yes probably with the help of socalled ghost designers, because each of the woman I mentioned before can’t even stitch a button on a blouse or shirt. Only a famous name don’t mean that you’re a good designer or can design, but okay these days it’s a hype every celeb comes up with his/hers own socalled collection. It’s actually a slap in the face of the real designers, like Mr. Lagerfeld, Galliano and others. Because it seems so simple as baking bread but you and I know there is a lot more needed then only a wellknown name. Arriverderci
