Gigi Hadid is no longer just a model. She can now add “fashion designer” to her rather impressive resume. Not only is Kendall Jenner’s BFF signing on as Global Brand Ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger, she is also designing a collection for the famous clothing line.
Tommy Hilfiger announced the signing of Gigi Hadid in an Instagram post earlier on Thursday.
“Say hello to our new Global Brand Ambassador (and face) of #TommyHilfiger womenswear.. The one and only @GigiHadid. We’re thrilled to announce the #TOMMYXGIGI collaboration capsule and fragrance set to arrive Fall 2016. So, so much more to come,” the caption reads.
This is huge news for those who want to copy Gigi Hadid’s eclectic–and oh, so very fashionable–style.
Unfortunately fans will have to wait until Fall 2016 before any of Gigi Hadid’s pieces are offered on the retail market. Her line will include clothing, footwear, and accessories, as well as watches and sunglasses, too. The collection will feature the Victoria’s Secret Angel’s “all-American aesthetic.”
People magazine reports Gigi Hadid will launch a fragrance in celebration of her designs, too.
“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. There are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear, and styles that are tomboy but girly; everyone’s is going to love a different part of it,” Gigi Hadid tells the publication during a recent interview.
Tommy Hilfiger himself weighed in on Gigi Hadid promoting his fashions.
“I’ve known @gigihadid for years, and it has been amazing to watch her grow into one of the world’s top models. Confident, effortless and cool, she is truly the definition of today’s ‘Tommy Girl’. –TH #TOMMYXGIGI,” he captioned a photo of himself with the model.
Gigi Hadid is the daughter of Yolanda Foster of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame. Yolanda is no doubt very proud of her daughter, and excited over what this new business venture will do for her career.
