Kendall and Kylie Jenner to celebrate line with big bash

Kendall and Kylie Jenner will launch their new clothing line with a lavish party to tie in with New York Fashion Week.

The reality TV stars are no strangers to fashion, having previously teamed up with PacSun and Topshop on collections and with Kendall already a world famous model. However, the new range, called Kendall + Kylie, marks the first time they've had total control of the design process.


To mark the special occasion, the sisters are planning a party to show off the upcoming Spring offering, with the event taking place in the Big Apple on 8 February (16). The timing is no coincidence, as New York Fashion Week kicks off on 10 February (16).


According to WWD, the location is yet to be secured but the fun will start at 8pm.


Kendall + Kylie will be sold in a number of big name stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Lord & Taylor. The range is expected to feature a blend of the sisters' styles, taking in Kendall's love of classic and girly pieces and Kylie's slightly edgier, streetwear vibe, and will retail for between $60 and $250.


Eager fans have already been treated to some looks from the collection, with Kylie posting images of herself wearing them on her Instagram account. Over the weekend (16-17Jan16) she debuted a shot of herself in a tight black dress which fell to just below the knee and included a lace-up panel snaking from the centre front around to the hip. It had long sleeves and a simple round neck, with Kylie accessorising with spiked heels with ankle straps, also from the collection. To ensure no one was under any illusions about the outfit she was wearing, the star branded the image: "Kendall and Kylie Collection Coming Soon".


The pair spoke about their design process in July (15), telling WWD how much they were enjoying being able to do exactly what they wanted. "This is all us. It’s enjoyable to be able to fully create,” Kendall said. “It’s a lot different from our Topshop and PacSun collections because those were both collaborations, so they obviously had a say in everything.”
