AccessoriesTheShow New York – Designer Spotlight: Vince Camuto

What do you think will draw retailers to your collection this upcoming season?

The spring 2013 collection is all about ladylike silhouettes and chic styling. However, I think this spring will mix feminine and edgy – combining florals with leather booties for example. I also love the use of stones and beading. I think the season is going to be about statement pieces as well.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

I draw inspiration from everyone I meet and all the places I travel. I try to interpret my experiences through the product all the time.

How do you start the design process when creating a new collection?

I think about the modern woman every time I design a collection. I think about her busy lifestyle and I want to make sure we dress her for every occasion.

If you could dress a celebrity who you feel fits your product image, who would it be and why?

The best part about the brand is that it is perfect for a variety of women. We truly dress women everywhere so there are many different celebrities that represent the Vince Camuto woman.

What three items are essential to you during market week?

My essentials during market week are great shoes and a great team – that’s all you need!
