We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!
When the last episode of The City aired last summer, reality star and L.A. native Whitney Port was working at a New York City-based PR firm and struggling to get her fledgling clothing line, Whitney Eve, off the ground. Now Port, 25, is living in L.A. and finally realizing her design dreams, with her best-yet spring collection hitting stores this month. Styles range from chic narrow-leg trousers, drapey pants and ruffled blazers to infinitely versatile short dresses—all of which reflect her California upbringing and gleaned-from-living-in-Manhattan sophistication. Though you'll have to wait until February 28 to snap up pieces at whitneyeve.com, you can get a glimpse of the collection's standouts and hear what Port has to say about her designing process, where she loves to shop in L.A. and other juicy tidbits right here.
What's the inspiration behind your spring collection? "Laid-back California style and New York's edge, so there are lots of bright, bold colors and fun prints mixed with relaxed pants, loose shorts and shift dresses."
What are your favorite pieces in your spring collection? "The Fin dress is totally '60s chic. It's an easy-to-throw-on dress because it's loose and short. I love wearing it with ballet flats and a ladylike bag during the day. For evening, I'd add a clutch and a big statement necklace. Another great wardrobe staple is the Eva blazer, in either the print or a solid color. It works with pants or loose shorts and flats during the day and at night over a dress."
