The Amy Childs collection has just arrived! You’ll now be able to snap up gorgeous dresses, playsuits and jumpsuits from the entrepreneurial fashionista at dorothyperkins.com and in selected DP stores. We caught up with Amy to find out more about her style and what to expect from the latest collection.
Tell us about your collection….
‘Ever since TOWIE people have noticed my sense of style. I absolutely love fashion but I always had a strong vision of what I wanted in a collection. After Big Brother it just made sense for me to move into designing.
How has your look changed since you first appeared on our screens?
‘Since I started working on my collection, I have learnt so much. I have always loved my fitted dresses, but I think my style has evolved towards more versatile and elegant pieces. I wear dresses that can take me from day to evening and I’m not afraid to try a new style or look’.
Whose style do you admire?
‘Victoria Beckham is a style icon of mine, I think she is so sophisticated and focuses on simple pieces that are tailored and elegant. I respect not just her style but her entrepreneurial nature. That being said, I don’t just look at celebrities for style ideas. I believe creativity should come from a number of sources, especially in fashion’.
What’s your perfect date-night outfit?
‘If it was a dinner, I would go for a sophisticated fitted pencil dress, but something interesting like my Alexis dress – I love the asymmetric hemline and statement buckle side detail.
And what would you wear to a wedding?
‘Pastels are my favourite at this time of the year; I love powder blues and pinks and soft feminine shades. I think my choice would be Abigail dress in mint; I simply love the colour and the detail – perfect with a nice jacket and either flats or heels.
You’ve had so much success already, what’s next for you?
‘I have been working hard on AmyChildsAcademy. Beauty has always been my passion and I want to expand my products and give more therapists access to quality beauty products and training. I am massively focused on my fashion collection. I plan to move on to different items such as nightwear and casual wear later this year and even hope to expand my fashion brand worldwide one day; the sky is the limit’.
