Gigi Hadid Turns Fashion Designer; Collaborates With Tommy Hilfiger

What a great way to launch a new career path! Model and TV reality star, Gigi Hadid has now turned to fashion designing. The 20 year-old has collaborated on a capsule collection with top American designer, Tommy Hilfiger. Gigi had these to say after the announcement was made; "I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate,". "His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life, and Tommy is the easiest, most fun person to work with."

The collection is set to hit the shelves by...

autumn 2016. It will include a collection of sportswear, footwear, accessories (including watches and sunglasses), and also a new fragrance, all of which  would "celebrate Hadid's unique take on modern style, fused with Hilfiger's signature 'classic American cool' heritage". Tommy Hilfiger also aims at capitalizing on Gigi's global social-media reach to help with the sales of the new collection. Hadid who has modeled for a host of designers this year from Moschino to Balmain and Victoria Secret is also Vogue's cover star for January 2016.
