Madonna On Designing With Lourdes
We recently reported on Madonna's foray into fashion with her new clothing line for juniors, Material Girl, and here's the scoop on the real creative force behind the line—her 13-year-old-daughter Lourdes (aka Lola)! "Lola has been bothering me for ages about designing clothes," Madonna told the Associated Press. "Stella McCartney is a good friend of mine and she got [Lola's] mind thinking when she was a little girl. She has been very influenced by European fashion...by the music she listens to...[and] of course my closet. My Christian Dior shoes will go missing and then some fabulous bag!" When asked about her own fashion sense, Madonna replied: "I am boring...[Lola] reminds me of me when I was younger. She just goes for it and tries different things...that is how I used to be." And the pop star doesn't pull her motherly rank during the design process: "I see her more...as an artist and less as my daughter as we are working, and then every once in a while I remembered she is my daughter." Material Girl launches exclusively at Macy's in August.
