When Rachel Roy was spotlighted in one of the 2007 VIBE Vixen print issues, we knew that the then Creative Director at Rocawear was one to keep our eye on. Fast-forward five years later, Rachel is a Vixen-In-Charge with a successful designer fashion brand consisting of clothing and accessories bearing her name. She even collaborated with NBA All-star Amar’e Stoudemire to design a limited edition collection for Macy’s. She’s been quite a busy Vixen.
Inspired by Manolo Blahnik, Rachel Roy will be expanding her fashion brand by launching her very first footwear line in August. In the first collection, which will contain flats, pumps and boots, you can expect to see a variety of different materials and textures used such as wool, suede, animal print and more. The collection is casual chic and perfect for any woman. Here’s what Rachel had to say about her footwear line:
“Here’s the thing about me and shoes. I really feel like it’s the one item that, no matter how much you make, it is worth saving your pennies for,” she says. “I don’t want them to be just strong or just sexy. My collection is just that—strong and sexy. It represents the woman I want to be.”
Shoes from the collection will be priced from $195 to $600.
Vixens, will you be checking for Rachel’s footwear line when it debuts this summer?
