Sarah Jessica Parker: I worked for free

Sarah Jessica Parker has explained why her partnership with Halston ended.

The Sex and the City star was made president and chief creative officer of Halston Heritage, the sister label of the Halston brand, in January 2010.

Sarah wore the brand's creations at numerous press appearances, but their relationship came to end after a year and a half.

"We've all worked with complicated people," she explained to the US edition of Harper's Bazaar, "and I always think that I can disarm them. I love collaborating. I'm a great listener and learner, and I don't think I know more than they do. I'm transparent. I really did work for free, in the end some cultures can't be undone."

The failed collaboration hasn't put Sarah off pursuing her interest in fashion. Her next attempt to break into design is a shoe line with George Malkemus, the president of Manolo Blahnik.

"The shoe business is so exciting because we don't have to think of black and brown as the only neutrals anymore," she said about the project.

The 48-year-old is mother to four-year-old twin daughters Tabitha and Marion Loretta. She says the girls are into playing dress-up but not with her clothes just yet.

"They come to me and say, 'I don't want to wear that; it's not beautiful.' I don't know where these ideas come from because we don't talk a lot about it in our house. We don't hold up examples of what's feminine, what's pretty," she continued. "They're more drawn to hideous cheap fabrics and sparkly colours."
