Reel Fashion: Movie Character Designers We Wish Actually Existed
Even though we're in the throngs of fashion month, we can't help but think of a few designers who aren't showing this season. Well, they actually never show, because they aren't real...but we wish they were. Some of our favorite movies have starred fashion designers so good that we wish we could see their collections season after season. We've rounded up our favorites from the silver screen: click through to check them out.
The Story: Sue Ellen, a sassy high school grad, is up for a summer of fun when her mother heads to Australia. Bad news for her, Mama Crandel hired a babysitter. In a crazy twist of fate, the babysitter dies and Sue Ellen is left to care for her brothers and sister. After faking a resume (Comme des Garcons? Really?) she lands a job as assistnat to Rose Lindsay, an SVP at General Apparel West.
The Clothes: Another cloud above Sue Ellen's summer? GAW is about to close, so she takes matters into her own hands and turns the uniform supplier into the "teenage fashion wave of the future." Think bellhop uniforms, but...for everyday wear.
Favorite Quote: "And she's really whipping up excitement in her boots."
