Is that the crumbling sound of Rachel Zoe’s fashion empire crashing down on her? Not so fast, says the clothing and accessories maven, who set the record straight today on rumors regarding the fate of her Bravo reality show and clothing line.
“At the end of the day you hope journalists fact check,” she told ModaMob at a conference for Lucky Magazine FABB (Fashion and Beauty Blogger) in NYC.
“The truth is that my show was picked up and my business is strong. What makes taking the high road hard is that I read something in the New York Post that isn’t true and then everyone picks it up like wildfire.”
Zoe confirmed the fifth season of her popular TV program which chronicles her whirlwind career, styling red carpet outfits for clients like Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson and managing her newly launched upscale clothing line, which heavily “draws inspiration from the ‘60s and ‘70s…for that person who I dream to be…wearable and classic.”
As for The Rachel Zoe Project, expect more glimpses into the familiar Zoe-Berman chemistry that keeps the ambitious fashionista in check.
“It helps to have your husband as a business partner,” she says. “He is very pragmatic and I’m not. He has to hit me over the head with a stick and say, ‘In the real world, this is how it happens.’”
Can we expect another Berman, baby Skyler, to grace us with his adorable-ness in upcoming eps?
“This season you will see a lot of my being a full-time mom. And full-time professional,” Zoe adds. “The show won’t focus on my son, but he will be there.”
Also on the 2013 horizon, a forthcoming book, collection, and a fashion tip for winter.
“I’m styling like crazy. My son is another hat. There is a lot coming up. I have my hands in new businesses,” Zoe says, suggesting that next season we should, “Put your heavy coat over your shoulder. It looks gangster.”
