Emmy Rossum is entering the fashion world by teaming up with designer Elie Tahari to create her own purse.
The 24-year-old has designed a woven leather handbag which comes in four different sizes and colors.
And it seems the collaboration came about casually during a regular conversation.
“I was talking to her about her style and I saw that she had good taste and she liked [my] bags. She’d say, ‘I wish it was this way, I wish it was like that…’ and I said, ‘You know what, Emmy? You come in and you design it like you like.’”
As for the bag design, Emmy reveals:
“I thought a lot about the kind of bag I wanted: versatile, worn by the working woman in any season,” she said. “It was important that it had compartments in the sides, because I hate those big bags where your iPod cord gets mixed in with your lip gloss.”
The "Emmy" bucket bag will be released this March and retail for $398 to $798.
And to make things even better, a portion of all proceeds will go to the charity Safe Horizon, an organization providing help for victims of domestic violence, child abuse, human trafficking, rape and sexual assault.
Glad to see some of the proceeds going towards a good cause!
