sarah jessica parker elle halston quote.jpgDespite concerns over how her presence at Halston would be received, Sarah Jessica Parker has emphasised her commitment to her position as chief creative officer.

"It took me a long time to say yes," she says in the January issue of US Elle. "I kept saying, 'You understand, by offering this you are going to be criticised?'"

"I said, 'Please know this now: I will never do this for a title. I will never dip in and out of this. I'll do it like everything else I've ever done. I'll be involved down to the splitting of the atom.'"

However, she admits it has been a big learning curve. "I might not have the language; I can't always tell you the exact blend of a fabric, but I figure it out."
