    JWoWW touched down in Vegas over the holiday weekend for her first ever Filthy Couture fashion show, a 38-look collection filled with string bikinis, Daisy Dukes, and cut-out minidresses, naturally.

    The event also coincided with the launch of the e-commerce Web site, FilthyCouture.com, where you can score all the cleavage-y goods.

    So just what is Filthy Couture? StyleList caught up with the reality TV guidette to find out.

    StyleList: Why the name Filthy Couture?
    JWoWW: It goes hand-in-hand with the lifestyle that I grew up with -- house music. We use terms like "dirty beats" and "filthy beats," which is like the hard-core house music we listen to. Anyone on the East Coast can understand that "filthy" doesn't mean "dirty," but filthy beats as in the music.

    SL: Why did you go the fashion-designer route?
    JWoWW: I've always been interested in doing a line, and when the show premiered, a lot of girls were asking where I got my jeans and shirts. I made them all, just taking another designer's clothes and customizing them. At first I was just going to remake the sling-back shirt and ripped jeans [I wore on the show], but now I'm collaborating with some other small businesses to do this.

    SL: At the MTV Movie Awards, we saw you wearing a pink, sparkly low-cut Filthy Couture dress. Is that the type of thing we should expect to see in the rest of the collection?
    JWoWW: The one I wore at the MTV Awards was handmade. So something like that will be on the more expensive side since it's made to order and they are hand-beaded with Swarovski crystals. The dress I wore to the "Hard Times of RJ Berger" premiere is going to be along the lines of what I'm selling, which is more affordable clothing.

    There are bathing suits and dresses on the site now, and there will be T-shirts and jeans this fall. The bathing suits are two extremes: They are either really girly or have the rocker look with chains. The dresses are going to be sleek, casual, and sexy. I used lace and a polyester-lace mix, and they all have details around the bustline. I'll have some prints coming out in two months.


    SL: What are the price points?
    JWoWW: The bathing-suit separates will go for $50 to $80, dresses are $150 to $350, and the more extreme handmade pieces will be over $1,000. The T-shirts will be from $60 to $100, and so will the jeans.

    SL: You've become known for your cleavage. Is that something that's prominent in your collection?
    JWoWW: Yes and no. A lot of [the pieces] are form-fitting and they will show cleavage. But there will be some padding and padded bras inside the dresses, so if you don't have cleavage, you can look like you do. A lot of the pieces are more covered up if you don't want to go that extreme.

    SL: Were you inspired by any other designers for this collection?
    JWoWW: When I get inspiration off of other people's [collections], I turn away. I think if I'm inspired by you, it might look too much alike. That's why my T-shirts haven't launched yet. I thought they were too last year. If I see a shirt that I've designed and it looks too much like Affliction or Ed Hardy, I think, No -- because it's already been done.

    SL: Do you have plans to launch anything else?
    JWoWW: I want to launch a tanning line -- a bronzer to amplify your color and accelerators for the tanning beds. After that, I'd also like to work on daily bronzers to use without going into a tanning bed.

    There's a skin-care line with my doctor, Dr. Greenberg, I've been working on. It's premature now, but hopefully in the next couple of months we'll have something solid. It'll be for young teens with acne and skin problems.

    I would probably [have a New York Fashion Week show] in February, but because we might be filming again, we're not sure. And hopefully I'll start a purse line. I don't want to just throw my name on anything. I want to be hands-on and have everything be my own; perfect it, and make sure it's all 100 percent.

    i know isn't funny how these idiots think they can add 'couture' and suddenly it's relative to fashion? clearly devoid of any kind of scruple.

    of course,this should have it's customer base....in the porn industry.

    I knew this thread was going to be a laughingstock...

    truth is, there's a market for this in the U.S. and its going to $$SELL! (if shes smart she'll take it to Shibuya, Japan too) Also and most importantly, JWow knows who she is and what her point of view is. These are intentionally tacky clothes for a market of colorful, skimpy wearing, over done, over sexed club going messy girls AND THAT'S what the "Filthy" in FilthyCouture really stands for.

    ...quite the opposite of Haute Couture, this topic could've waited a week.

    She explains: 'We all listen to the same type of music, which is house music, and everyone on the show says "filthy beats" and that's where I kind of came up with it.'
    'I wanted to make dresses that are sexy and casual dresses that can be sexy and a little bit edgy,' she adds.
    'They are more affordable, but there is definitely still detail.'


    Her co-star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino is following suit too.
    He has teamed up with Miami-based Dilligaf by Bohica Bill to launch a couture line.

    The line - to be called Dilligaf Couture by the Sitch - will debut in July and will consist of T-shirts, sweat shirts and accessories. The items will feature his own artwork and the brand's acronym Dilligaf.
    JWoww and The Situation are the latest in a line of MTV stars eager to break into the fashion world.

    You're all haters. She's really J-Wowed me with all the pieces I've seen so far. The turquoise booby dress she's wearing is very versatile, you could wear it to Prom, Graduation, funerals etc. This collection will have everything a self respecting sl*t will need to go from morning to evening. Stella McCartney better watch her back.

    I hope she does a separate line of realistic looking hair extensions to go with these ensembles...

    Except for s**** clothes and plastic handbags. :rolleyes:

    Don't you kind of miss the days when reality stars did their time on whatever show they signed up for, and then promptly disappeared into obscurity after the season finale?

    I'm so sick of wanna be "designers" using the word couture to sell crap. Although I'm sure tons of people will line up to buy this atrocious garbage... Though I have to say I laughed when I saw those photos (post #15) with her rags hanging on those cheap nasty plastic hangers, it goes with the clothes.

    It's amazing that there are a few very talented (struggling) designers out there who can layer drapery with a clean, refined cut in their sleep but will never get the opportunity to launch a collection and I see this where you don't really need skill, or taste or really understand the word 'couture' or have the balls to really rebel against fashion to create something new.

    At least she knows her clientele and what kind of woman would purchase this.
    Filthy isn't a descriptive enough word for this 'line'
