New mom Rachel Zoe has compared starting her own fashion line to giving birth to a baby. She feels that when she launched her debut collection, the same sort of excitement and feeling of fear was present as when she had her son Skyler.  However, once she launched the first collection, she felt overwhelmed with excitement and was pleased she pushed herself to do it:

“Being a designer was the thing that I always said, ‘I’m never going to do this, because I’m too scared to do this’. All of sudden during my presentation this season, I was like ‘Oh my god, why am I doing this, I’m too scared to do this. Then it was like, it was almost like giving birth.  When it was over, I was like, ‘This is the most exciting, most challenging adventure. This is new, and this is fun.’ “

In a video for Shopbop.com, Rachel speaks further about the collection, saying that each piece is something she would wear herself, and she thinks out each design carefully:

“Everything I do, I have to be hands on, because I can’t put my name on something that I’m not proud of and excited by and wouldn’t wear myself.  Seeing people wearing my clothes is going to be one of the most exciting things that’s ever happened in my career.  When I put on something from my collection, I see my name in it and I think, ‘really?’ It’s beyond a dream come true.”

Rachel also says that when she gets the first prototypes made up of each design, she “stares” at it, and then decides if it needs changing:

“First prototype comes back and we have a fit model and I just stare at it. Then I’m like, the lapel is too wide… or the sleeve is boring me, I want it to have a cuff.”
