You may rarely see her in a pair of jeans but rumor has it that Naomi Campbell is penning a denim collection for Italian brand, Fiorucci. The Naomi Campbell for Fiorucci denim collection is expected to launch with the Spring/Summer 2012 offering and to debut during Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
This isn’t the supermodel’s first try at designing as she pinned a collection in 2008 for the Sao Paulo-based line, 284. I would love to see Naomi Campbell expand her brand to include more fashion lines as models of her stature like Kate Moss have done.
Though she is one of the few from her generation that is still actually modeling, names like Kimora Lee Simmons and Tyra Banks have been able to create empires off their brand and expertise in Fashion. Naomi, who already has several perfumes under her name, could easily venture into the world of fashion design and commerce, and be hugely successful at it.
What do you think of Naomi Campbell’s latest venture? Should she pursue designing or stick to modeling? Would you shop her denim collection?
