The list of celebrities that also â€˜design’ is becoming longer than the length of my arm. Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Mandy Moore and Nicole Richie are just a few of the names on that list. But now it seems that not even sportsmen and women are safeâ€¦
Maria Sharapova, the Russian tennis pro, unveiled her first accessories line last week for mobile phone giant Sony Ericsson. Showcased via a catwalk show, The Maria Sharapova Design Collection includes four bags – Courtside Case, Exercise Case, Party Bag, and Travel Wallet. They’re quite cute, actually, and not bad for a first-time designer (although I suspect she had some help in the design department).
Speaking about the collaboration, Maria said,
â€˜People want style, fashion and glamour, and with this collection I know that they’ll have it’.
