The whole celebrity-cum-designer list has grown to such heights that even I can’t keep track of who has done what.. but I can tell you that the former face of Candies, Stacey ‘Fergie’ Ferguson has signed a deal with Brown Shoe to create her own namesake shoe brand.
Much like Paris Hilton has.
“I have always loved fashion because it’s a great way to express your mood. And I’m definitely a shoe lover,” said Fergie. “The right pair of shoes can change the feel of an outfit, and even change how a woman feels about herself. A woman can wear confidence on her feet with a high stiletto, or slip into weekend comfort with a soft ballet flat.”
The Fergie shoe collection will be released for Spring 2009, with retailers set to be given a sneak peek at the early designs at the June 2008 Fashion Footwear Association of New York shoe show.
“We envision the Fergie consumer as a woman who is chic and fashionable, loves to wear the latest trends, and looks for distinctive details when shopping for shoes to add to her already considerable
collection – much like Fergie herself,” said Brown Shoe Wholesale President Gary Rich. “Women around the globe know and love Fergie for her music and her bold style. Through this footwear partnership, we can establish another way for Fergie to connect with her fans.”
Well, I wonder what will set this collection apart from her fellow celebrity shoe-designers like Paris and Natalie Portman. Fergie will join the likes of Carlos Santana, Reba McEntire and Gretta Monahan who have shoe collections with Brown Shoe.
