Sarah Jessica Parker: Why I left Halston

Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed why she severed ties with Halston.

The American actress became the president and chief creative officer of the heritage label in 2010. Famous for her unique style and New York persona, Sarah seemed like the ideal candidate for Halston.

However, the stunning star walked away from the firm earlier this year, and has explained her reasons for doing so.

"Really the business was being taken in a direction I wasn't interested in pursuing," Sarah Jessica told British Vogue. "That's why Harvey [Weinstein] and I decided to leave the company. I don't regret my time there. I feel honoured to have worked there - even if only for a brief time.

"Halston was an amazing experience. I'm really proud of what I got to do there and of the people I got to work with."

Sarah is currently starring in I Don't Know How She Does It, which follows the struggles of a busy working mother.

The 46-year-old admitted that her own hectic schedule has made her less fond of shopping than others might think.

"I'm aware of people's association with me and fashion and I certainly take that role on for some occasions, but it doesn't dominate my thoughts all the time," she explained.

"I still like getting dressed up and having the opportunity to borrow beautiful dresses, but as a mother - and as somebody who's schedule isn't always my own - I don't shop a lot, or think about clothes a lot."
