From Television and Red Carpets to Fashion, We Interview Sharon Carpenter on her Collaboration with Ego Soleil
Ego Soleil as a contemporary womenswear brand already created striking, structured pieces that stood out to us. When they debuted their collaboration with broadcast journalist and producer Sharon Carpenter, we were impressed with the beautiful, feminine touches she added. Floral prints, form-flattering skirts, and a leather jacket that escaped the typical biker jacket mold were instant hits with us.
We always appreciate designs that can survive the volatile nature of fashion fads and trends. Even if you have only one piece from Sharon Carpenter’s capsule collection, just know it will last you for years!

Composure: How did your collaboration with Ego Soleil come about?
Sharon Carpenter: My longtime stylist, Roni Francois, had previously worked with Ego Soleil and connected me with the owner, Del Addison. Roni pulled some of the brand’s looks for me to wear at a couple of New York Fashion Week appearances. I was super impressed with the quality of their garments and their designs. On top of that, I really liked the team. Both sides realized that it could be a wonderful thing for us to join forces and work on something amazing together. After brainstorming for a while what that could be, we decided that it would be very cool to create a collection together and a month or so later the work began.
C: How did you feel when you got to first see the finished product in person?
SC: It’s been such a cool experience to be part of the process from beginning to end. Ego Soleil have gone out of their way to help guide us through the process and I’ve been very involved with everything, from the sketches and designs, to the fabric selection, to the sample fittings, to the final product. It’s been an eye-opening experience, realizing just how much you need to consider when designing a piece that not only looks great but is also functional and comfortable to wear. When I saw the finished product in-person, it was such an amazing feeling. My top priority has been creating a collection that women will love and feel their best in. Once I saw the pieces, I knew we’d accomplished what we’d set out to do.

SC: Oh, most definitely. Fashion is so important to what I do for a living. Sometimes the way I’m dressed on-camera can be even more important than what I’m saying. It’s the first thing people notice when you pop up on their screen and it can affect the way they feel about you as a host or reporter…
