No word of a lie, Women's Wear Daily reported today that Jessica Simpson is on-target to pull in $1 billion by 2012 from her Jessica Simpson Collection. The line which is available at retail outlets like Sears, The Bay and Macy's, includes Shoes, Boots, Handbags, Jeans, Coats, Dresses, Fragrances, Jewelry, Intimates, Acessories and Lugage.
On Simpson's success, Vince Camuto (Founder and CEO of the Camuto Group) told Women's Wear Daily that "People like her. People look at her as a style icon". Camuto's company is the official Licensor of Simpson's products.
I knew her shoes were a hit among The Fashionable, but who would've known that Simpson was doing that well? Her latest album Happy Christmas however, isn't faring quite as well, having debuted last week at number 123 on the U.S Billboard Hot 200 Chart with 10,153 copies sold. The album is her first with independent label Primary Wave Music after having released six albums via Sony Music.
