Olivia Palermo says it’s likely she will design an "eveningwear line" in the future.

The style icon is known her immaculate dress sense and for sitting front row at the biggest designer runway shows around the world.

Since finding fame on reality TV series The City, Olivia's fashion credentials have kept on growing.

She's recently been unveiled as the star of a new collaboration between designer Oscar de la Renta and discount online shopping destination The Outnet.

The 27-year-old plans to use her fashion industry knowledge to turn her hand to creating clothing herself one day.

"It's definitely something I'm looking in to," Olivia revealed to British magazine Look. "I want to build my company the proper way, over time. Once I settle down and create the line, it will most likely be eveningwear."

The American star is known for her designer meets high street ensembles. Speaking during the London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 13 showcases, Olivia described what she loves about fashion shows. She also shared her advice for dressing for the occasion.

"There's so much creativity. All the editors are at almost every single show, which is fantastic for designers," Olivia gushed. "[Sunglasses are a must for fashion week events] Every once in a while you have to update them. I do cat-eye or wayfarers. I think about versatility when I get dressed in the morning. And I'd be lying if I said the weather wasn't a factor!"

When she's not posing on the front row, Olivia invests a lot of time working on her blog and website OliviaPalermo.com which she co-founded. She described it as a mixture of style, fashion, and design.

"[My blog] is a focus on my sense of style and what inspires me. It's supporting young, emerging designers that we see- and sometimes established ones too. We also have little quick fix tips for fashion that we really love, because who doesn't want to have a little extra tip along the way," Olivia finished.
