Socialite and television personality Kyle Richards has joined forces with fashion designer Shahida Clayton for a new collection that will launch during New York Fashion Week on Sunday, September 8 at Pier 59.
Kyle and Shahida is a women's contemporary ready-to-wear brand consisting of resort wear, separates, jumpsuits, rompers, dresses and red carpet/evening looks. The first collection of Kyle and Shahida is inspired by nature and wildlife, and they incorporated that theme into their custom printed fabrics, which include tropical plants, florals, sea shells, fish, butterflies, exotic birds and animals of the Serengeti. The presentation will be "see-now-buy-now", and on Monday, September 9, the SHOP section of the brand's website, www.Kyle-Shahida.com, will go live and the collection will be made available for pre-order purchase, with a three week turn around for delivery.
"As a longtime fan of Shahida, I am beyond thrilled to be collaborating with her on our new line Kyle and Shahida," Richards said in a statement. "Our collection of chic ready-to-wear is beautiful, luxurious, flattering and comfortable. Our prints are inspired by our travels and love of animals and nature. I cannot wait for everyone to see what we have been working on!"
"Kyle has been a friend of mine for some time now, and she has a truly fabulous sense of personal style," Clayton said in a statement. "I am really excited to debut our brand at New York Fashion Week, and begin this new incredible business venture beside her."
