What was your inspiration behind the fall collection?
I wanted to create something really dynamic, striking, and confident. I think confidence is key. These clothes are ready to hit the street. They're for real women in real situations. I want to empower women to feel strong, powerful, and beautiful.
Did you try anything completely new this season?
We're working with this really cool fabric that has a neoprene surface. It gives you the wearability of a great knit with the athleticism and modernity of neoprene.
Do you have a favorite look of the collection?
I've got a lot of favorite looks. I love the idea of pairing a great cozy sweater with an embellished or patterned skirt. I think it's time to wear skirts again. We're so into our jeans. As much as I love colored denim, I feel that fall 2012 is the season for skirts.
