SJP: My girls love fashion

Sarah Jessica Parker's daughters choose their own clothes and dress themselves.

The 48-year-old actress launched her footwear line SJP Collection over the weekend, which she created with Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus.

When showing her twin daughters Tabitha and Marion, who she and husband Matthew Broderick had via a surrogate, her designs Sarah happy to see they were interested.

However she insists the girls' passion derived from their own personalities.

"My daughters came to the pop-in shop and tried on shoes... but I will say, any true keen interest they have in fashion is engineered soley on their own!" Sarah laughed to E! News.

"They have wonderful fantasy lives that have nothing to do with who I am. They really make up their own clothes and costumes and dress themselves."

Sarah also spoke about the concept behind the footwear range. Her latest offering is perfect for spring, with designs such as brown lace-up ankle boots.

"There's decades and decades and decades of incredible imagery that you probably have in your head that's meaningful to you. It just so happens that George and I shared the same period of interest," Sarah added.

"I wanted to go back in time to the simple shoe, which is really hard to do well. That was really our point of inspiration."

Sarah also added a personal touch to each pair of shoes. They each hold a small grosgrain ribbon, which features on the side of the heel or in a small tab on slip-on styles.

“My sister and I always wore ribbons in our hair; we had a drawer full of grosgrain ribbon but not any money,” Sarah previously explained.
