Another day, another model jumps on the designer band wagon. Veteran British model Yasmin Le Bon has dipped her trendy toe into Sir Philip Green’s fashion empire as her collection launches at high street store Wallis, part of the fashion mogul’s Arcadia group.
Yasmin invited family and friends along to the Sanderson Hotel last week to celebrate the launch of the collection, which includes floor-length evening dresses, a navy military jacket, a velvet tuxedo suit, and jewellery , all inspired by favourite items from her own wardrobe. Green, who cast his fashion eye over the collection, has given his nod of approval.
He told WWD: â€œYasmin is elegant, classy and gets it.
The YLB collection has also been given the seal of approval from Le Bon’s 19-year-old model daughter, Amber, face of vintage-inspired swimwear label Myla.
â€œThere are so many pieces I want to steal, said Amber, who has been a regular face at London Fashion Week this week. â€œI’ve already got my excuses planned: I’m going to say the pug ate them.
We wonder if that excuse will work for us, too?
