The various members of the RACHEL Rachel Roy design team have been filming their lives and inspirations with a flip cam, and Rachel recently shot her own behind-the-scenes video diary of her life as a designer and a mom - plus fun highlights like her fave NYC spots (including eyebrow threading). "I love watching documentaries and reading about people’s lives," notes Rachel. "These flip videos are the modern version of this."
Check out the entire YouTube series at RachelRoy.com, and enjoy this quickie Q&A with the glamorous designer:
What is your advice to other women looking to achieve your unique, stand out style?
Know yourself well. Have the confidence to wear what you want and wear it well. Experiment with unique colors and prints.
How do you balance life as a mother and a designer?
Balance needs to be worked on daily. Without a constant focus on what is truly important it will get lost every time.
What are your favorite RRR pieces for summer?
I absolutely love the evil eye pendant. Evil eyes are loved for karma and the good energy they bring. The black scalloped shorts are a perfect combination of ease and sophistication. The Koala animal ring is fun, I always love a good cocktail ring. The printed flats with gold studs are comfortable, unique and so chic. I love the honeycomb scarf worn as a turban. And everyone always needs a cardi and my summer collection has so many different cardigans to choose from.
RRR is the younger sister to the designer brand. She’s fun and optimistic. I always look forward working on different collections as they bring new life to what I am working on.
