Jo Wood, ex-wife of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, is launching a line with Harold Tillman, chairman of the British Fashion Council, and Los Angeles based fashion designer Christopher Wicks.
Wood’s already launched an organic skincare line, and she’s taken a couple of turns down Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label runway, but we’re not sure about her designer qualifications–other than being a rockstar’s wife.
Tillman, however, is an investor in both Aquascutum and Jaeger on top of his role in the BFC. (He also happened to be one of the first male students to attend the London College of Fashion.) So he’s a bit more qualified, but we doubt his role will go beyond that of investor.
And if they are actually hiring a designer from Los Angeles (which sounds kind of nuts) then who knows what Jo’s actual role will be. But if she’s gets Dame Vivienne to collaborate, or show up to a party or two, we’ll pay attention.
