Q: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showcases a very glamorous, upscale lifestyle. Does your shoe line Adrienne Maloof by Charles Jourdan reflect that aesthetic?
A: Absolutely. When designing my collection Adrienne Maloof by Charles Jourdan, I chose styles and designs that worked well for my lifestyle – incorporating things that I had always wanted to see incorporated in my favorite shoes.
Q: Have shoes always been your biggest indulgence fashion-wise?
A: Well I’ve always loved shoes. Even as a young girl, I would play with Barbies and the first thing I would do is pick their shoes and then design the rest of the outfit around the shoes. My whole life I have absolutely adored shoes. I grew up with all brothers, they would go in my shoe closet and say, “How many pairs of shoes does a girl need?” My father would always protect me and say ,“You never know, my little girl might make it a business one day.” And here we are — I’ve made it a business!
Q: If you could use any two words to describe your shoe collection, what would they be?
A: Sophisticated edge.
Q: What type of woman do you envision wearing your shoes?
A: I think that the collection offers something for everyone. Whether that’s an everyday mom looking for a way to indulge or a fashionista who changes clothes three times a day, I think there’s a great spectrum of looks that are united by a love for color and glamour.
Q: Let’s talk shoe trends: what’s going to be hot for Spring/Summer 2012?
A: Bright colors are big for Spring/Summer 2012. Platforms are going to continue being popular, but with the addition of straps and peep-toes for a more open feel, which is appropriate for the season.
Q: One of your family businesses includes the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Does the Vegas flair work its way into your personal style?
A: Vegas has always been a place of opportunity for my family – the glamour, the excitement and the sense that anything can happen on the next roll of the dice, and I think that there’s definitely that idea of possibility in the collection.
