New York Magazine has an interesting piece on the fashion of Jessica Simpson. While her music career has faltered at seemingly every turn, her fashion empire has exploded. I knew it was doing well, but last year her sales clocked in at $750M which puts her at roughly the same amount of sales as Michael Kors. Yep, the same Michael Kors who is a judge on Project Runway.
Apparently Jessica examines each piece and it only gets sold when she says approved. The only Jessica Simpson fashion accessory I can swear that I have seen is her perfume. However that is just the tip of the iceberg. Her clothes which include a ready to wear line this year will include a career separates line. What kind of career she does not say, but with the additions, Jessica is supposed to hit the $1B mark in sales. That is a whole lot of clothes. I am happy for her. She could have just gone away when her singing did not go as she had planned and people make fun of her relationships, but she has stuck with the fashion and I think it is great. Maybe she can give Ashlee a job. You know Pimpa probably has a great time assisting the models with the clothes.
