Mollie King fashion designer

Hey all, hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sun – if you lived in the south of England at least!

I would love to be posting a tour update, or a promo update, or even the Bigger premiere which didn’t happen last week, but alas this isn’t a Not Giving Up news post, it’s about Mollie’s aspirations to become a fashion designer.

Mollie King has fast become a front  row regular and attendee at some of fashion’s hottest parties – she was even unveiled as the first ever ambassador for Oasis.

Better yet, the star landed herself a modelling contract where she joined a roster of talent including Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Lana Del Rey and Suki Waterhouse.

The 26-year-old singer has clearly enjoyed her foray into the fashion world revealing that she has hopes of designing her own range one day.

Speaking to MailOnline, the Maybelline Better Skin foundation ambassador said: ‘I love doing the modelling I’m really  enjoying it and learning lots from working with different photographers.

‘However my priorities for this year are with the band and with Oasis as I have another collection coming out with them in April.’

Mollie’s ‘Loved By Mollie’ AW13 collection for Oasis – a 45-piece capsule range handpicked by the  well-dressed singer – went on to become one of their best-selling of all time – and fashion fans will be pleased to hear that The Saturday’s star is considering turning her hand to designing.

‘I would like to design, yes. Hopefully in the future.

‘I’ve learnt so much from doing the campaign it’s been a really nice introduction  for me because you don’t realise how much there is to learn so I’m  really pleased I’ve done it this way round first and then would like to  do into designing at some point,’ she told us.

For now, however, Mollie is focusing on her duties as ambassador for Maybelline and, naturally, she’s a big fan of the brand.

‘Being part of a band I worry about foundation clogging my skin and I know with Better Skin that it’s good for the appearance of my skin day-by-day and is non-clogging whilst giving a dewy finish.’

Mollie maintains that her beauty regime is pretty minimal – she uses L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection 15 Second Cleansing Oil twice a day and some Carita products on her skin.

Speaking about her closeness to her fellow Saturdays band members, Mollie said: ‘We love to have girly chats about make-up and hair and we love to do things like watch an award ceremony and then discuss people’s make-up and hair.’

Despite spending a lot of time stateside and holding up fort on the front row, Mollie hasn’t caught the juicing bug like her fellow celebrity friends.

‘I take daily multivitamins but that’s it really,’ she said of her health regime.

‘I’m not a big fan of juices and I’ve never done a juice diet because I really like munching on my food and so don’t really like the consistency of soups or smoothies. I would rather actually eat the fruit.’

LOTS of promo regarding this. For those in London, check out the big Oasis store in Covent Garden, apparently there is a huge window display!

Fashion Magazine Grazia met up with Mollie to talk about her fashion range with Oasis.

Mollie has compiled a 45-piece collection, which is an edit of her favourite pieces from the Autumn Winter 2013 collection, including plum leather pencil skirts, oversized tan coats and dreamy pastels. Plus the blonde pop star also stars in the campaign to go alongside her Loved By Mollie edit.

Mollie was giddy about her collection, skipping around the large dining table to talk about her take on this season. She told us that: ‘I went into the Oasis office and there were rails and rails of clothes that I could dive through. It was like every girl’s dream! I picked out my favourite bits, but it was really hard to narrow everything down because obviously I couldn’t pick the whole collection! I wanted a mixture of evening wear and casual pieces.’

Also news that broke yesterday is that Mollie has signed up with model agency ‘Next Models Management’ 

“She started popping up on our radar. We noticed her style and how great she looked. We really like to sign people who already have a style of their own, and who know what they like. Mollie has great things ahead.”


Mollie launches fashion range with Oasis

We begin today with news that Mollie has continued to further branch out into her fashion roots by becoming a ‘fashion ambassador’ for high street chain Oasis.

The new ‘Loved By Mollie‘ AW13 collection is said to be styled on the girl herself featuring her personal fashion loves like oversized coats in on-trend pastels, tapestry prints and leather separates, thanks to her keen love of clothes.

When questioned about her own look, the style savvy star told us that while she was used to having her outfits picked over in the media, it was her family’s fashion advice she always trusted first.

‘My nan has just learned how to use Google News,’ she said. ‘Sometimes she’ll text me to tell me that she liked last night’s outfit, which I love. If my grandparents like it, I know it’s a winner.’

Mollie, who simultaneously announced her new signing to Next model management, celebrated being the first celebrity partner for the high street store, paving the way for an exciting career in the fashion industry.

Going solo for her new fashion project, The Saturdays’ sweetheart said she wasn’t quite ready do a Victoria Beckham just yet, though she hoped to follow in the footsteps of the fashion mogul who created her own style empire after leaving her girl band roots behind.

‘Music will always be my number one and I hope The Saturdays continue for much longer. The girls are all so happy for me,’ she told us.

‘Victoria Beckham is my idol. I was in the same room as her once and I really wanted a photo but I chickened out. I grew up with the Spice Girls – I would die if I thought she’d heard of The Saturdays.’

Mollie‘s new ‘Loved By Mollie’ collection hits stores today, view the collection in full now online at Oasis. {Note that seems to be the link, but there isn’t anything on the page yet!}
