Gwen Stefani - Gwen Stefani's Sewing Genes
Singer-and-fashion designer Gwen Stefani says sewing ''runs in the family'' and she has always made her own clothes.
Gwen Stefani says sewing "runs in the family".
The No Doubt singer has launched two successful clothing lines - L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers - and admits it was inevitable she would go into fashion because all her family have shown talent for it.
She said: "I can sew - it run in the family. My grandma made my mom's prom dress - mom didn't have a choice! And mom would take us to the fabric store and we'd pick out Vogue and McCall's patterns. When I got older, I was very ant-fashion. I was into thrift stores and making my own stuff. I had my own sewing machine, glue guns and projects everywhere. My room was a danger zone."
Gwen says she's involved in every part of her fashion lines and has so many ideas about her designs.
She said: "Fashion's not as draining as music but it is much more greedy - there are endless ideas and dreams about what you want to wear. And then you've got to make that happen. But I enjoy all parts of the creative process - making the cookies and eating the dough."
