Gwen Stefani hopes to design wedding gowns

Gwen Stefani has translated her long held fascination with Japanese culture into a new TV show.

Gwen Stefani would one day like to try her hand at designing wedding gowns.

The former No Doubt frontwoman has achieved success with her creative ventures of late, debuting her clothing line L.A.M.B in 2004, her Harajuku Lovers range a year later and has partnered with Tura on eyewear and Burton on snow gear.

Her colourful and unique creations may be in-demand already, but Gwen wishes to create a collection of wedding attire in the future, after designing a dress for No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont’s bride.

“Getting the right partner would be really important in that,” she told WWD of the bridal market. “It’s technically complex but, yeah, I just have a superstrong point of view as far as my taste and what I love. Just give me opportunities to tell you whether I like it or not.”

Talk of weddings inevitably leads to questions on whether she’s contemplating walking down the aisle with her country singer beau Blake Shelton. But Gwen, who was previously married to Gavin Rossdale, is quick to shut down any speculation regarding nuptials. “I’m not really thinking about that right now,” she shared.

But what Gwen, 46, is readying herself is the premiere of Kuu Kuu Harajuku, an animated series to screen on Nickelodeon which was inspired by her longtime fascination with Japanese culture and street style. The Used To Love You songstress notes show is a culmination of everything she loves, including music, fashion, travel and expression.

“In the Harajuku district, which was, of course, happening for years and years before I discovered it, it was the self-expression and the need to be different and unique and stick out and be outrageous,” she explained. “It was always something I loved to do as well.”
