The Blonds' Ambition: The Design Duo on Dressing Katy Perry and their Dream Client

Posted on

Phillip and David Blond of The Blonds have been creating blinged-out designs for starlets like Katy Perry, Fergie, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera since 2008, but there is still one star they haven’t gotten their glittery hands on–Betty White! “I would make something for her in a minute, no questions asked,” gushes David Blond to Onsugar’s fashionfunhouseemporium blog. “I don’t think she’d be able to handle one of our metal corsets, but I’m sure we could cinch her a little bit and pull off a Marlene Dietrich look if she wanted it…or a Pavé pantsuit, and since its Betty White, we’d make it all white.” And while Betty’s people have yet to reach out to them, the designers are hard at work with Katy Perry on her new summer album, Teenage Dream, due out in August. “The theme is kind of this candy, roller skating, fun in the California sun vibe,” says David. So how does the design team interpret Katy’s vision? “We listen to her, we do sketches, work with the stylist. Then it’s always the artist that brings the garment alive,” says David about the collaboration process. Read more from David’s interview with OnSugar at fashionfunhouseemporium.com. —Andrea DeSimone
