In an interview with the Star Tribune to promote her Bitten collection for US chain store, Steve & Barry’s, Sarah Jessica Parker was quoted as saying:
“What’s interesting to know about a blogger, and I’m glad we live in a democracy and we can all have an opinion is that these clothes are not made for people in the fashion industry.
Huh? Well then who are the clothes designer for if they’re using her name and featured in Glamour magazine? It doesn’t quite make sense. Actually the whole paragraph doesn’t make much sense, (which makes me wonder how much work writers and sub editors put in to make celebrities sound coherent.)
After the feedback blogs received about the un-fashionable Bitten collection after images were posted on the web – which were removed after Steve & Barry lawyers threatened legal action – you’d think Steve & Barry and Sarah Jessica Parker would realize the power of the web and blogs when it comes to finding out what people want.
Oh and while Sarah Jessica says that her collection is for people who are not in the fashion industry, then why did she host an exclusive launch for the collection with editors from Vogue, Glamour and WWD in attendance?
