Yasmin Le Bon collaborates with Wallis

By FashionUnited

Yasmin Le Bon has collaborated on a capsule fashion range for Wallis. The 44 year-old beauty graced countless London catwalks before marrying Simon Le Bon and becoming a mother at the age of 24. Said Yasmin: "I have a great wardrobe, but I find it difficult to find clothes for my age: sexy and demure at the same time. When Philip Green asked me if I wanted to design my own collection for Wallis, I selfishly just designed a new wardrobe for my self!"

Yasmin Le Bon is one of the original 'supermodels' with a successful career spanning three decades. She has worked with every top photographer from Mario Testino to Peter Lindeberg, aswell as appearing on the launch issue covers of American and British Elle magazine and more recently the cover of British Vogue magazine.

This Autumn Winter Wallis launches an exciting new collaboration 'YLB For Wallis' with world renowned supermodel. This is the first time Yasmin has stepped away from modelling to design her own range of clothing and jewellery and Wallis is delighted to be working with Yasmin for her exclusive debut collection.

YLB captures the essence of Yasmin, her Persian descent, her iconic style and love of vintage, for a timeless sophisticated collection. Yasmin has been involved in every stage of the project working alongside the Design and Creative teams at Wallis to create 'a wardrobe I truly want for myself'. Yasmin says 'I have so much admiration for what they do at Wallis, I can't just put my name to something to me that's completely meaningless, if I'm going to do something I'm going to be involved all the way and it's been a fantastic learning curve'."

Comprising of 20 styles in various colour options, Yasmin's collection 'YLB for Wallis' will be available to buy exclusively at www.wallis.co.uk from the 12 September 2009 and in Wallis top stores from the 15 September 2009.
