Christine Quinn was “hurt” when a “big fashion house” refused to let her on their runway because of her reality TV background.
The ‘Selling Sunset’ star is fashion’s “biggest sensation” and recalls being hurt by naysayers – last year she got the last laugh wearing the unnamed firm during a major magazine photo shoot.
She said: “Fashion is my biggest passion, I live and breathe fashion. I feel like I came from reality TV, I had to work harder to be taken seriously.
“I remember two years ago, I was turned down by a big fashion house during fashion week because they said, ‘We don’t work with reality stars.’ I was a big fan of the brand, so it hurt me a lot.”
Referring to her photo shoot for Sunday Times Style – for which she wore labels including Versace, Dolce Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, Michael Kors Collection, Gauge81, Wolford and Carven – she added: “Fast forward to the Sunday Times Style cover, and they chose the cover photo of me wearing the same fashion. It’s a house he previously denied access to and posted the photo on Instagram shortly after the cover aired.”
Christine thinks that fashion houses have changed their attitude towards her recently, because they respect the way she works “very hard”.
She added to Grazia USA: “Since then, I’ve embraced it because I don’t expect anything to fall into my lap. I work really hard, and I’m so grateful that all my hard work has finally paid off.” It begins to be known.”
The 33-year-old star walked the runway at Paris’ Balechiga couture show last month and said she felt “honored” to be a part of the show, but not nervous about walking in such a high-profile event for the first time.
She said: “The Balenciaga show has been a long time in the making. I work hard to show that I’m running quietly and working hard. Everything is amazing. I’ve been a fan of Balenciaga for many years. So to be Demma’s muse and walk in his show, I feel honored right there at home. it was.
