Kristin Cavallari feted her new shoe collection with Chinese Laundry on Wednesday at New York lounge Avenue.
The six-style capsule collection, which was on display, launches for spring at such retailers as Dillards.com and Von Maur. Chinese Laundry plans to expand the offering in future seasons.
In addition to promoting her line, the TV personality is prepping for the holiday season, but was a little reluctant to make any New Year’s resolutions for 2013.
“Every year I say I’m going to stop swearing and I never do that, so I’m not even going to try [this time],” she joked.
Here, Cavallari sounds off on becoming part of the shoe industry and other projects she has lined up.
1. What’s your entry into the footwear business been like so far?
KC: It has been awesome. [The Chinese Laundry team is] really good at listening to what I like — they really get my style. We decide on colors and everything together.
2. Where do get your sense of style?
KC: I flip through magazines to get an idea of what trends are important. All of the shoes represent my style and what I like to wear. I like the bootie, but I’ve been wearing flats a lot because of my everyday life [as a new mom].
3. What other projects are you working on?
KC: My jewelry line [with Glamboutique.com] will be out in February, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Kids shoes are adorable and would be fun, but I hope my shoe line is successful first and then I can branch out and do other things.
