An Interview with Elizabeth Hurley
British actress and model Elizabeth Hurley became hotter with her role in Gossip Girl. Besides her intelligence and boss mind in Gossip Girl, she is also brilliant in the real world. Elizabeth Hurley is not satisfied with her fame in TV but expands her reputation in fashion with her her swimwear brand Elizabeth Hurley Beach. She talks exclusively to Kat Slowe about the swimwear brand. Let’s go and see.
Q1: Why did you launch a beachwear collection?
I decided to venture into Beachwear not only because I’ve always been obsessed with holiday clothes, but also because it’s an area where women, regardless of shape or size, can either look amazing or really get it wrong. I wanted to come up with some styles that make people look great and develop a resort collection which would make a woman feel fabulously sexy at any age.
Q2: How has the sector developed in the past six years?
More and more people are seeking the sun throughout the year and the days of women only buying swim for summer vacations are long gone. We have two collections, which we deliver in October and January.
Q3: Why did you choose to exhibit at the Mode City show?
Traditionally, we have sold mostly to the US and to exotic resorts worldwide. However, we would love to be more accessible to European buyers, hence exhibiting at Mode City. We have many loyal internet customers throughout Europe, all of whom would love to be able to buy from stores too.
Q4: You already do beachwear and bed linen. Would you consider lingerie?
Actually, I’d love to design a lingerie collection-it could definitely happen!
Q5: How has modelling helped you to design swimwear?
My experience of being a woman panicking about packing for vacation has helped me more. Packing a perfect capsule wardrobe, which fits and is flattering and comfortable is not something that happens by accident. Too often, we all lug unnecessary stuff and still find nothing works together and we feel uncoordinated. Good quality swim should last for years, and beautiful kaftans even longer. It’s all about making sure you have a great cover up for each piece of swim. It’s hopeless having the sexiest bikini in the world and no sarong or kaftan to slip over it.
