Award-winning British designer Amanda Wakeley is to join forces with Aston Martin to design a new range of fashion clothing. The partnership deal will be formally launched at Wakeley's Spring/Summer 2007 Fashion Show on September 21.
"Beautiful design and unparalleled attention to detail are central to Aston Martin's ethos of power, beauty and soul," says the manufacturer's Chairman and CEO Dr Ulrich Bez. "We are delighted to announce our collaboration with Amanda as we both share similar values in the quality of our materials and in our craftsmanship."
"As a British fashion designer who sells around the world," adds Wakeley, "it is incredibly exciting to be working with Aston Martin, an iconic British brand with such global recognition. Style, luxury, superb craftsmanship and the use of only the best materials are values we share. I have long held an ambition to work with Aston Martin."
Wakeley, a self-taught designer, launched her own signature fashion label in 1990 and has since won three British Fashion Awards for Glamour. The "Amanda Wakeley for Aston Martin" clothing range will be available through her website, and also from Aston Martin dealers worldwide.
