Whitney Port started out as an intern at TEen Vogue with a fashion dream — to design her own clothing line — and now, her dream accomplished during NYC’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with a Whitney Eve show, she spoke to OK! about how her big debut went. “I think it was good,” she told OK! at last night’s afterparty at Le Souk Harem.”I mean you never know. You have to wait until you see the next day of what the reviewers say. I was happy with it.”
One aspect that made her not so happy? All that preparation!
“Oh my God, it was so insane!” she revealed to OK!. “There’s so many details that you never really realize go in to a five or ten minute show. It was very, very hectic. All worth it though.”
Whitney says she finds her design inspiration in the people around her.
“I think fashion is art so I really like to give people what they feel most confident in,” she explains. “I grew up with lots of girls so I want to make everybody feel sexy and happy.”
Beyond her duties to her own line, Whitney has been busy working on the new season of The City, which returns to MTV on Sept. 29.
“It’s been really fun. We’ve been able to film throughout the summer so that’s really cool. We’ve had a lot of great work events and its cool to have them film my clothing line,” she tells OK!.
So how is this seasons going to be different than the last?
“I’m finally being able to do what I really want to do which is design a clothing line so I really feel like I’m fulfilling my dreams.”
