From Kim Kardashian to Jennifer Lopez, CelebBoutique has dressed some of the biggest A-list stars to date.
Opening as an online store in May 2010 from just a bedroom (that’s right, a bedroom), CelebBoutique is quickly becoming an international brand. The brand now has five international offices, a cult of clients worldwide and a huge social media following to match. Not to mention it is stocked in our very own Selfridges store in the city centre.
Founder Conna Walker, 21, told us who she wants to work with and which celebs she’s obsessed with.
Which celeb look/style is the most popular?
We actually design all pieces in house now and have for nearly 2 years, celebs are wearing CB designs which is amazing but we find that our bandage pieces are always popular. And prints – people love prints!
Why do you think Celeb Boutique is so successful?
We work really hard to ensure we bring out seriously hot pieces, really regularly and we’re kinda obsessed with packaging too (our pink boxes are our trademark) and always want to have that luxury feel so when you buy CB, you feel like its really worth it. Our customers are also amazing and really supportive and into the brand – so I think that’s why our dolls keep coming back.
Who is the best celeb that you’ve worked with?
We work with a tonne of great people, but at the moment we are having a really good time with Vicky Pattison and working on a secret project with her, she’s so much fun!
Who else would you like to work with?
We’ve just sent pieces over to Tyra Banks – obsessed with her and Nicki Minaj – her body is amaze but of course, we would LOVE to work with Queen B, Beyonce!
Would you consider opening more stores?
We’re actually in the process of doing so right now, we have plans for more around the UK & also already looking into stores in the US & Australia, so it’s exciting times.
Who is your most loyal celeb customer?
We have tonnes so it would be hard to say. All our dolls are the best customers though, they love the brand and are so supportive so that’s always great for us.
If you had to choose one celebrity to represent the brand over a long period of time, who would you pick?
OMG this is so hard! We love so many, but I guess the dream would be Beyonce (again). Can you tell I’m Obsessed?!
As the go-to place for celeb looks and gorgeous dresses, do you think the celebrity attraction has made the brand more well-known and popular?
Definitely! Especially as we’re getting so many celebs wear our items now, it works really well for us and shows our customers what it looks like out & about rather than just on our models in a shoot!
