Anna Sui's Adele dream

Anna Sui wants to get Emma Watson and Adele in her designs.

The designer, who's dressed some of the most fashionable stars in the world including Olivia Palermo, would love to get her designs on some of Britain's most famous faces.

With her signature style inspired by her world travels, Anna has always loved dressing famous faces and rock stars alike and thinks her creations would perfectly suit the different body shapes of Harry Potter actress Emma and pop star Adele.

"I've never dressed Emma Watson, and I've never dressed Adele, which I'd like to. Also, I just reintroduced menswear and the first men's customers I ever had the first time round were Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran and Mick Jagger, when he had just hosted Saturday Night Live.

"Hopefully, this new collection will attract the new generation of rock stars," Anna excitedly told Vogue UK.

Anna studied at New York's Parson School of Design, and set up her namesake label in 1981 with her first runway show attracting critical acclaim.

In addition to fashion designs, Anna has added accessories, footwear and a beauty range to her ever growing empire.

"I have the best job in the world, because anything I'm doing, anything I'm excited about, anything I'm obsessed with, I can put into my work, and I do in my shows.

"And that's why I think the Anna Sui world is so eclectic - there's such a mix of eras and influences and inspiration. It gives me an excuse to learn more about it and research it," she said.
