Singer, actress, philanthropist and now fashion designer — Thalia really can do it all! In celebration of her new collection, we sat down for an intimate one-on-one with the star herself.
You've successfully conquered music, television, publishing, and now fashion. How do you manage it all?
I have a very strong support system — I would not be able to accomplish half of what I do without my family, friends and amazing team. It also takes a lot of discipline and organizational skills to keep everything flowing seamlessly. It’s exhausting and exciting all at the same time!
What inspired the look of the collection?
This collection is very much inspired by my personal style. I love to wear clothing and accessories that incorporate bright colors and fun, bold prints. I also think the sexy silhouettes and figure-flattering styles will make any woman feel confident and stylish.
How involved were you in the development of the line?
I had a vision for the collection that I wanted to deliver to my fans. I took part in every step of the process — from helping to design the fabrics and prints to assisting with the fit and silhouettes of the clothing — with help from an amazing team of fabulous and passionate designers.
What's the one item you think every woman should own?
A knee-length pencil skirt — it's versatile and makes you feel chic and elegant, in an effortless way.
The ad campaign looks fabulous. What was it like working with Ellen von Unwerth?
Ellen is amazing! Her creative genius is evident in all of her work, and truly came to life during our marketing shoot. We had great chemistry and I honestly can't wait to work with her again!
Can you give us a hint about what we can look forward to in the Fall?
We are working on designing great pieces for the Fall that will really fit the look and feel of the collection. I love dressing for cooler weather and pulling out my favorite pair of booties. It's all about gearing up for the cold while still feeling sexy and stylish too.
What's next for you on the horizon?
My mind never stops… I'm always thinking of the next big step and I love to reinvent myself. I look forward to establishing goals, while continuing to do what I love most. This collection and partnership with Macy's is one of my biggest dreams and to see this all becoming a reality is truly an honor. I hope to continue working alongside the Macy's team to bring my fans more of what they love.
