I used to watch exactly fifteen minutes of Top Design. I tuned in 45 minutes in so I could see what design judge Kelly Wearstler was wearing. The ensemble that got me hooked was a plain white tee, grey skinny jeans, worn under a floral strapless gown. It was a look somehow understated despite it's mixing of extreme high and low, street and classic, pieces. When I heard that she was designing a line I was exstatic.
Wearstler's desings manage to be distinctly mod, rocker, classic, architectural and texutred all at once. Each look has edgy roots without going Girl with the Dragon Tattoo over-the-top (not that that would be a bad thing). Wearstler's downtown girl is still feminine and powerful.
Clearly, Wearstler has a unique perspective and her interior expertise with color and shape has influenced each of her collections. As demonstrated by my viewing behavior, I think changing clothes is more fun and easier than changing around a room. Thanks Kelly for the fashion inspiration! You rock, for real.
