So what’s Marissa from The O.C up to these days? After modelling for Calvin Klein, bebe stores, Aéropostale, Monsoon Accessorize and Dooney & Bourke; PHOENIX caught up with Mischa Barton to discuss her new life as a fashion designer and becoming a retail entrepreneur.
After nine successful seasons curating her own bag range, Mischa Barton has now launched her own clothing and cosmetics line revealed in her debut London store. With the doors wide open during the maiden voyage of the Spitalfield’s boutique a crowd were beginning to gather in excitement of the presence of Mischa and the possibility of grabbing a picture with her.
The collection reminiscent of 60’s King’s Road, London boutique designs, the British born actress is putting a twist on the style she claims her mother influenced her with from an early age. Joined by her Pomeranian dog Ziggy, Mischa also exhibited her new collection with prices ranging from £25 to £250. The price tags are not as high as one may think as Mischa wanted the collection to be accessible for all her fans, however that touch of exclusivity only a boutique can offer is still available.
After a glass of champagne and a cup cake (provided by none other than Kate Middleton’s brother, James) we caught up with Mischa to discuss life as a designer, inspirations, influences, Noel Gallagher, fashion and everything life is gifting her at the moment.
