Famed Supermodel and celebrity designer, Kate Moss, is expanding her repertoire by agreeing to create a signature line of handbags for French leather worker Longchamp.
WWD Fashion is reporting that the 37-year-old British model has signed a deal with Longchamp to design two unique collections each year. This is not Moss'' first interaction with the company, as the fresh-faced model has also served as the face of the company''s advertising campaigns for the past four years.
Specific details of the deal have been scarce, though the news provider is reporting that Moss'' first collection could be in stores as early as February.
Moss is no stranger to fashion design. In addition to being one of the most successful and sought-after super models of the past 10 years, Moss has also designed a line of lady''s lingerie for British retail chain Topshop. Her signature collection has grown to encompass clothes, bags, shoes and belts since its inception in 2007.
Moss began her modeling career in 1988, when she was discovered walking through JFK airport leading to a shoot with British fashion magazine The Face.
