Daisy Fuentes Dishes About Her Fashion Week Fashion Show + More!
The former MTV VJ and style maven chats with us about fashion, having it all, and what’s coming next.
Daisy Fuentes gained public acclaim as the first Latina VJ for MTV and continues to break ground in the fashion world. Currently, she helms a Kohl’s line that rakes in hundreds of millions in profits each year and is working hard to make her second 360 Style fashion show a huge success. We caught up with Fuentes about her fashion empire, her upcoming spring/summer 2013 line, and what should be in our closets right now.
Betty Confidential: What do you have planned next for your Kohl’s collection?
Daisy Fuentes: My Kohl’s line started very slowly, so I’m taking my time in terms of adding new categories and expanding. I want to make sure that our customers will love any new additions!
BC: How involved are you in the creative process?
DF: Everything creative goes through me. I have a great design team, one that I fully trust. But I’m directly involved in the DNA of the brand. I’m making decisions from the very beginning to when the items hit shelves.
BC: What were some of your design inspirations for your Fashion Week show on September 12, 2012?
DF: For the spring/summer 2013 show, my inspiration was the Spanish gypsy trend. It’s a combination of youthfulness and a hippie-chic attitude.
BC: What are your favorite pieces from the line?
DF: Definitely the maxi dresses. I love the paisley prints and rich, bold colors.
