The flame-haired model and singer Karen Elson has teamed up with American high street footwear brand Nine West to collaborate on a limited edition collection of accessories for their ‘Vintage America’ Collection.
Born and raised in Manchester, Elson now lives in Nashville with her husband, rock star Jack White, and their two small children – who are also set to star in the Nine West campaign – and it seems the model couldn’t be happier with her new-found business venture.
“My dream of designing a collection that’s a true reflection of me has now come to life through this collaboration,” said Elson.
Having worked closely with the brand’s creative director Fred Allard on the range, Elson has created a collection which reflects the inspiration she took from the Thirties Dust Bowl and burlesque dancers.
“An otherworldly beauty and modern muse like Karen Elson truly embodies the inextricable connection between fashion and music,” said Allard. “I was not only inspired by her music, but also by her powerful personality, attitude, allure and undeniable talent.”
However, the footwear franchise has not yet confirmed whether Elson’s range, which launches in the US in September, will be available in the UK, reports The Telegraph.
Fingers crossed it will be…
