Supermodel Cindy Crawford turns designer for C&A
Aug '12
C&A partners with Cindy Crawford to create her very first exclusive fashion collection. She belongs to the first generation of international model icons, has modelled for all the premier labels and still is one of the most successful models of all time. 

Today, Cindy Crawford is not only a supermodel but also a successful businesswoman and a mother of two kids. For C&A, she is now entering entirely new territory by designing her first fashion line “Cindy Crawford Collection @ C&A”. 
“Cindy Crawford is known to the world as one of the original models who defined that pivotal moment when fashion models became stars in their own right. As such, she represents the iconic aspirations of the generation to which we target some of our core ladies’ collections: chic, modern and timeless. At the same time, she managed to remain the ‘girl next door’ as she describes it herself, having also a personal life beyond the spotlights as a businesswoman and a mother,” explains Thorsten Rolfes, Head of Corporate Communications at C&A Europe.
Starting this fall, her collection will be appearing in more than 1,500 C&A stores and 8 online shops throughout Europe. It goes without saying that her personal style will be reflected in this collection. “My goal is to help design comfortable fashion for everyday wear,” she confirms. Cindy herself loves styles with which she looks good in everyday life, too, regardless of whether she is with her husband Rande Gerber or her children Presley and Kaia.
“I have always dreamed of having my own fashion line and am thrilled to be partnering with C&A on this venture,” says Cindy Crawford, who has now designed her first collection. There is no doubt that her many years of experience on the catwalk as well as as businesswoman and a mother have benefited her in this project. Therefore she knows the things that are important to women. The choice of C&A as a partner was an obvious one for her.”
“C&A has a long-standing history of providing quality designs at an affordable price point for its customers,” says Crawford. “It is important to me to be affiliated with a company that offers feel-good fashion with unparalleled customer offerings”. 
She is also impressed by C&A’s reputation offering value for money: top quality at favourable prices. For “Cindy Crawford Collection @ C&A” the supermodel took her inspiration from current trends while giving them her own very personal touch. The look is stylish, classical and contemporary, but also goes beyond the individual season.
The dress code is smart casual to easy, with elegant blazers, cardigans and sweaters as well as casual shirts, jeans and leather jackets. Details such as zips, fake-fur collars and belts look just as good as the clean-lined styles. The materials are top quality, consisting of blended woollen fabrics, merino and leather. All garments will be available in sizes 36 to 46, with knitwear in XS to XL.
