sarah jessica parker elle halston quote.jpgSarah Jessica Parker has opened up about why she decided to leave her role as chief creative officer at Halston.

"Really the business was being taken in a direction I wasn't interested in pursuing," she told Vogue UK. "That's why Harvey [Weinstein] and I decided to leave the company. I don't regret my time there. I feel honoured to have worked there - even if only for a brief time. Halston was an amazing experience, and I'm really proud of what I got to do there and of the people I got to work with."

As for her passion for fashion, the SATC star admits her busy schedule makes her less keen to shop.

"I'm aware of people's association with me and fashion and I certainly take that role on for some occasions, but it doesn't dominate my thoughts all the time," she explained. "I still like getting dressed up and having the opportunity to borrow beautiful dresses, but as a mother - and as somebody who's schedule isn't always my own - I don't shop a lot, or think about clothes a lot."
