Fashion Week: Five minutes with Rachel Zoe
amNewYork caught up with celebrity stylist turned reality star turned womenswear designer Rachel Zoe to get the scoop on her fall 2013 collection.
What was your inspiration for fall?
I drew inspiration from the 1970s equestrian lifestyle. I wanted to incorporate romantic menswear elements and intricate baroque detailing with something tougher and edgier in a nod to London's rock 'n' roll underground.
What's most notably new this season?
Leather sequin cardigans, Mongolian lamb accents and printed suede suiting.
What does your Fashion Week diet consist of?
I drink English Breakfast tea morning, noon and night, and I never skip breakfast. I have organic granola, berries and yogurt, and snacks throughout the day.
Who is your dream customer?
I'm obsessed with Kate Middleton. I would die for her to wear my collection.
What's your secret for dealing with stress during the busy days leading up to your show?
Starting and ending my day with my son, Skyler.
