Brad Goreski is about to spend even more time draping the world in preppy patterns and cheerful colors. In addition to his upcoming reality show "It's a Brad, Brad World" (which we will be enthusiastically recapping starting next week), Rachel Zoe's former assistant has announced his new role with Kate Spade New York, where he will be the "exclusive brand stylist."
Kate Spade is well known for bags and accessories, but their ready-to-wear apparel is newer and has yet to find its niche. "It’s my hope to get the ready-to-wear out there and see it more on the streets and see people playing with it and making it their own,” Goreski told WWD, adding that he wants to take the "Kate Spade girl to the next level.” Five bucks says there's a bow tie involved in that vision.
