Fashion is storytelling: Reese Witherspoon

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor-Produce Reese Witherspoon says she wants to tell stories through her fashion brand.

The 40-year-old, who has her own lifestyle brand Draper James, feels very motivated to share stories that haven't been already told through her company, reported female first.

"The South is on fire right now. I'm a storyteller, and fashion is storytelling, too. This has put me in a new sphere of influence. I'm very motivated to tell stories which haven't been told," she said.

The "Wild" star said she was initially nervous about starting her own business with no previous experience in retail or distribution.

"Starting a new business at the age of 39, not knowing anything about retail, distribution, e-commerce, net sales, I had a huge learning curve. It's all my own money, all my own time," she added.
