Yesterday in L.A. Gwen Stefani celebrated the launch of her Harajuku Lovers and Chasing Fireflies children’s collection in true Stefani fashion, with huge pops of color, bold style, and over-the-top but wearable flair. As children hit the faux runway (below) in pink wigs, ruffled dresses and angel wings, the No Doubt singer was beaming, particularly when her niece Stella Stefani strutted her stuff in a pink and polka dot ensemble complete with an anime teddy bear on the front of it.
“Having an event like this where [my designs] are celebrated on the runway like that and having my niece wear it … It’s crazy,” the Voice coach told us with a smile after the fashion presentation. Calling the quality of the clothes “luxurious,” Gwen told us she was glad to have the chance to design higher end clothing for children.
“I’ve never really done something like that for children’s clothes, because before I was doing it for such a low price point, which is super fun as well,” she continued. “To try to have the challenge to do something that looks really good that you can try to get your hands on it is really hard as a designer, so this is like a reward for me to be able to work with them.”
Before the show began, Stefani, who stunned in a multi-colored, sheer Christopher Kane top, L.A.M.B. shoes and two Harajuku Lovers watches, made sure to make her way around the room. While sipping a glass of prosecco topped with cotton candy, she hung out with her sons Kingston and Zuma, posed for photos with fans and chatted with friends, including former Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney.
“The only thing I hate about this is that I just want to do more and more,” Gwen added about designing the collection. “Like let’s do some [boys’ collections].” When we asked if she would ever design a line inspired by her oldest sons, Zuma and Kingston, she said, “They want me to do it so bad, but it’s a hard category so we’ll see what happens.”
