The list of celebrity designers is ever-growing. In some cases, it works like Victoria Beckham’s eponymous line and Diddy’s successful Sean John brand. But in most cases, entertainers aren’t always blessed with the eye and skill set it takes to be a designer. That doesn’t top luminaries from pursuing careers in fashion though.
Recently, Keyshia Cole tried her hand at designing with a line of shoes for Steve Madden. The singer, who appears on a reality show on BET entitled “Keyshia and Daniel: Family First,” wanted to design a collection that is affordable and cute. She told Power 105.1 FM’s “The Breakfast Club”:
I’ve been talking about this Steven Madden deal for about four years now so the reason why I wanted to do a deal with Steven Madden is because, when I didn’t have any money and before I got my deal, I use to buy Steve Madden shoes. So I just want to make sure that I do really cute shoes that my demographic can afford.
[The shoes will debut in] November. I’ve already made all three and they will be featured in my videos and in the album packaging.
She previewed two pairs from the collection on social media and on a television appearance for BET’s “106 & Park.” Check them out below:
The line appears to be feminine and flashy, with florals, ruffles and sparkles adorning platform sandals and wedges.
