“I Owe My Fashion Success To A Pair Of Daisy Duke Boots”
Posted by Gabriuska on December 4, 2013 with No Comments
Jessica Simpson made flashbulbs pop on the red carpet last night, then took the stage to present the biggest award of the evening. But the occasion wasn’t a Hollywood event for movie stars nor a Nashville music show — it was the annual Footwear News (FN) Achievement Awards, honoring the biggest names in the shoe industry.
Jessica Simpson is one of those names these days… and she owes it all to her Daisy Duke boots. Vince Camuto, licenser of the Jessica Simpson Collection since 2005 and winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award last night, told HuffPost Style,
“We started with little Daisy Duke boots.”
“Yeah, those boots!” Simpson chimed in, “That’s what we started with — and they took off and everyone responded.”
That’s probably an understatement. The Jessica Simpson Collection, which started with shoes but now boasts 30 categories including denim and accessories, was said to have brought in $750 million in sales in 2010 (“To put that figure in context, it means Jessica Simpson is doing roughly the same volume in sales as Michael Kors,” wrote New York Magazine) and was projected to bring in one billion dollars in 2011.
Jessica wears the brand herself, casts her sister Ashlee in the ads and is currently stocked all over the country at the likes of Macy’s, Lord & Taylor and Dillard’s, not to mention Zappos and DSW.
That mass appeal is the founding principle of the brand, Jessica told us.
“I think it’s just an all-American brand that really all different kinds of women across America and the world can wear. We give you everything, and it’s not just limited to one certain fashionista,” she said.
Added Vince,”We want to represent all women. They come in all different shapes, all different sizes, all different personalities…”
“And different pocketbooks!” said Jessica.
And thank goodness for that — we’re never not in the market for affordable boots. Especially ones like Daisy Duke’s.

Jessica Simpson Collection’s Showroom
Posted by Gabriuska on December 1, 2013 with 2 Comments
Jessica Simpson has had tremendous success as a designer of bustiers and belts, boots and bags. Young women are especially loving her handbags collection , which pursued her to provide for them a showroom of 5,000-square-foot floor in a 1930′s building in the garment district.
The Camuto Group, licensing partner for the Jessica Simpson Collection, specified a bright, fresh setting with a hint of luxury suitable for products geared toward young women. Andre Tchelistcheff Architects responded with a gleaming white fantasia, an open plan that includes display space as well as design studios and offices.
The idea of “All white” is very bold, and if used incorrectly could risk giving the image of too luxurious instead of just hip and trendy. But for the past years, brands of the same caliber have opened the way to such color concepts, as the younger generation is turning to the more daring over all look. With this showroom, Jessica Simpson proves that you can obtain the luxury image for an affordable brand.
Finishing and materials used
Flooring is epoxy. The handbags are shown in cases of glass and lacquered MDF, mounted on concealed casters for easy reconfiguration when lines debut or catwalk presentations occur. The vitrine in the entry is fixed in place, fronting an expanse of shattered windshield glass. That makes an interesting mix-and-match combo with the trio of Italian crystal chandeliers in the main studio.

Maxwell And Ace Steal The Show At The Dallas Event
Posted by Gabriuska on November 25, 2013 with No Comments
For Jessica Simpson, this weekend’s homecoming was a fashionable family affair.
Son Ace Knute, 4 months, adorably made his red carpet debut Saturday at a Dillard’s store in Dallas during an event celebrating her Jessica Simpson Collection.
Simpson, 33, protectively held on to the chubby-cheeked infant, who looked sweetly stylish in head-to-toe gray, including an unbuttoned shirt with the sleeves rolled up and super-cool baby Jordan sneakers.
But big sister Maxwell, 18 months, didn’t let her little brother hog the limelight. The towheaded toddler, dressed in leopard leggings, a graphic tee and faux leather bomber from the Jessica Simpson Girls collection (which Jessica and Ashlee co-design) hammed it up, waving and dancing with her family as the hometown crowd of over 1,000 watched, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
The mother of two, who’s been posting sneak peeks of her shrinking physique online, didn’t disappoint either, flaunting her figure in a short, striped dress.
Also on hand to lend their support for the line were Simpson’s fiancée Eric Johnson, mom Tina, her younger sister Ashlee and her boyfriend, Evan Ross.
“Everyone was in the best mood, having fun with fans and each other and so excited to be home in Texas,” the source adds.
