sophie theallet x the limited

Last night I was fortunate enough to preview Sophie Theallet's first installation of her collaboration with The Limited, as well as attend the debut of the collection. This is her first collaboration with a brand, and it was an honor to speak with her & with Linda Heasley, the CEO of The Limited regarding their partnership.

Sophie told me that she wanted to design a dress for the every woman, one that conveyed a subtle sexiness through detail in the draping, darts & cut, that can be taken from day to night. She chose to partner with The Limited because they bring an accessibility to the every woman and she felt she could create a fabulous dress at a price point that is attainable. 

Linda has been a fan of Sophie since her days as creative director at Azzedine Alaia, who she described as her 'aspiration designer' at the time, and has followed her career ever since. Sophie launched her own brand in 2007 to critical success, achieving the highly coveted and prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award in 2009.

I look forward to seeing the next installation as I'm sure it will be fabulous; for now though, make sure to check out Sophie Theallet's collection at The Limited stores nationwide! Special thanks to Sophie & Linda for taking time to speak with me.
