Claudia Schiffer slams "quick buck" celebrity clothing ranges
Unlike her peers, Kate Moss and Elle Macpherson, we won't be seeing a Claudia Schiffer-designed clothing range any time soon. The supermodel has slammed the recent spate of celebrity clothing lines, by describing them as a way to make a "quick buck".
While acting as a judge at this week's Graduate Fashion Week, Schiffer told The London Paper that she had "worked really hard over the past 20 years to make a name for [herself]" and therefore, refused to jump on the celebrity fashion label bandwagon.
"For me, it's not really about making a quick buck. I've had loads of offers from people wanting to attach my name to something," she said.
But Karl Lagerfeld's muse didn't exactly rule out putting her name to a fashion project in the future, adding:
"I may be interested in creating a fashion or couture house, but it has to be great fashion. I love it too much."
Meanwhile, the 37-year-old also had some advice for party-hard models Agyness Deyn and Daisy Lowe.
"There's not one way to reach for success - if you look at all the supermodels, everyone has done it their own way," she said. "But you have to stay focused and, if partying doesn't affect your work, that's fine. If you're turning up to shoots tired, it has to stop."
Amen to that sister!
