Recently, celebrities have been taking a break from their recording studio and film sets and opting to spend their days in the studio to produce their own collections. Celebrity-designer collaborations, capsule collections, and full-on labels are becoming increasingly frequent.

But why should celebrities steal the limelight and be the only ones to try their hand at designing? That’s where StyleShake.com comes in.
