Model Agyness Deyn is launching her own fashion brand this Spring called Title A.
The Brit model who was practically on every catwalk during the 00’s, has produced a collection inspired by her own relaxed, tough-luxe, androgynous style. Agyness isn’t the first model to move into fashion design, iconic model Kate Moss famously teamed up with Topshop to create multiple capsule collections for the high-street brand. So Agyness is in good company. I suspect this will be the start of a new model/fashion designer trend. How fabulous would a Cara Delevingne collection be?
Modelling and fashion design may be opposite sides of the same coin but rarely do the two cross over. I’m not sure I can recall one single fashion designer who has ventured into modelling? Traditionally models were required to be seen and not heard, only the occasional sneer or smile hinted at the models personality. Recognising a quirky personality or wicked sense of style is an asset, brands are now opting for ‘stand out’ models to front their catwalk shows. It’s not surprising savvy models want to channel their creativity into creating their own brands.
