DESIGNER DAILY: Alice McCALL
May 03, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
Alice McCall knows what women want to wear right now. Sheer palazzo pants, bold prints over bright stripes, prairie-leaning leather shorts and bell sleeves with eyelets have landed her in over 165 stores in 10 countries. This Aussie got her fashionable start in London working for MTV styling the Stylissimo series, where she got the opportunity to dress Natalie Imbruglia. From there she launched her own styling firm Torn and thus has worked with lady powerhouses like Kelis, Destinys Child , Blondie and Marianne Faithful. During this time, she started selling her one-off 50s inspired silk print tops that were snatched up by Kate Moss and influential others. After stints designing for companies like Buddhist Punk, she launched her own label Alice McCALL in 2004. And here we are, Fall 2012.
