What led you to be called The Blonds?
Our vision of The Blonds is a glamorous girl in the city of New York. The city has always been an inspiration and as we walked through the streets, we thought of a name to would represent our all of our designs and line. We thought in everything that inspires us, like Marilyn, mythology, animation and the golden age of Hollywood. Somehow we stood in front of a giant portrait of Andy Warhol's Barbie. And at that time, The Blonds was born.
How did it all start?
Patricia Field ('stylist' for the series and movie Sex and the City 'and' The Devil Wears Prada ') was the one who brought the idea for us to create a line. Our work with her on projects like 'Sex and The City and Ugly Betty 'had such a positive impact on us and we learned so much from her. She is a great counselor and friend.
