Rachel Roy gives new meaning to multitasking. Just before Jones Apparel Group acquired a 50 percent stake in her business, the designer gave birth to her second daughter, Tallulah Ruth, in May.
In between making a personal appearance last week at Nordstrom on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue —and generating $100,000 in sales — Roy spoke with WWD about new lines she wants to develop, her early days at Rocawear, which was cofounded by her husband, Damon Dash, and how she encourages her eldest daughter Ava to watch CNBC’s “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
