Eva Longoria is partnering up with Sunrise Brands to start her own clothing line!
But she can actually sew!
And as the latest celebrity taking the leap into fashion, that skill definitely gives her an advantage over her peers:
“It’s one of the things people don’t know about me. I sew. I have an industrial sewing machine in my house and I’m so excited when they develop a new pedal. ├óΓé¼╦£Ooh, now I can do a chain stitch.’ People think I’m crazy.”
Indeed, we had no idea!
Though we don’t think she’ll actually be sitting over a table sewing every piece in her collection, her knowledge and expertise will certainly greatly inform her design decisions.
She’s also apparently wanted to do this forever:
“I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and it is a real privilege to partner with Sunrise Brands who brings their expert experience in the apparel world. I am excited to design a collection that will offer women versatility while evoking confidence, comfort, and a sense of glamor.”
And now the star of Hot & Bothered has the requisite time to devote to fashion:
“Now it’s time to move into apparel. I finally have the time to dedicate to it. Before, I was just too busy.”
We don’t have any samples of her work yet, but her line will probably feature lots of dresses:
“I like one-pieces. They’re easy to wear ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it’s just zip and go. If I have to wear a camisole and a belt and a necklace and a skirt, it’s just too much trouble.”
It goes without saying that we’re looking forward to seeing her stuff!
