Supermodel, it-girl and girlfriend of Ksubi’s Dan Single, Bambi Northwood-Blyth is set to launch her first solo range collaboration with none other than General Pants.
Exclusively designed by Bambi, the range is called B.BAM and draws inspiration from the glamour of the nineties…think tartan, terry towelling and sequins.
Excitingly, Miss Bambi is giving away a $1000 wardrobe! Fashion designers, this is your change to be a part of the collection by designing a t-shirt for the range (for more info head here).
Bambi chatted to GP about her collab with some highlights from her interview below:
On her debut collection:
“I am a super creative person and I’ve always had an overactive mind! I think with modelling, flying at least a few times a week, travelling to new places, meeting some really inspiring people, wearing and seeing the latest clothes, designing has naturally rolled into my brain! Since I can remember I’ve carried a pencil case a note book with me, so in the time between shooting, and the endless hours in transit this has been such a fun creative outlet!”.
On her inspiration:
“Hella lot of ripping out of pages on magazines! From old to new ones, I’m a 100% hands on so lots of tear sheets, lots of nights drawing with an Artline, heading to the flea markets, finding my favourite pieces and outfits from my own wardrobe and working out what my ultimate outfit would be!”
On her personal inspirations:
“Being carefree and young and messy and throwing clothes on, but looking pretty and groomed at the same time! Being tough, being the tomboy, but having attitude, having a big smile, being a friend and being on a TEAM with your girls not against each other. I think it’s nice to see girls working together. Through researching for B.BAM there are so many girls out there with incredible style, art skills and talent – that’s what inspired the t-shirt competition.”
On her time away from the spotlight:
“It depends where I am! Solo, I walk and walk and discover places and walk and be introverted and draw pictures and sometimes escape to India! With Dan, with friends in USA, same thing but I like to ADVENTURE! Dan and I go on China Town adventures in NYC, hikes in LA, flea market flying in Thailand, meetings of the mind conferences, secret mid-day movie sessions…. I can’t really sum it up! I love Googling and discovering new places!”
