Back in January, we were treated to a peek at celebrity stylist, reality star and new mom Rachel Zoe's upcoming womenswear collection. Well, this July we'll finally experience the fruits of her (design) labor when her eponymous clothing collection launches exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman (plus nationwide and online through parent company Neiman Marcus). The Upper East Side institution of designer retail therapy has first dibs on unleashing the cut-out shoulder gowns, jewel-toned pant-suits (boot-cut, of course) and sparkly mini-disco-frocks to eager Zoe-bots in the city.

Following the initial Bergdorfs roll-out, shoppers will then see Rachel's designs at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's, Intermix and Kirna Zabête. In further Rachel news, the Rachel Zoe Collection will debut the same month as her popular Bravo series, The Rachel Zoe Project. (Nice synergistic marketing job, Andy Cohen!) And if that isn't enough Rach for you, come Spring 2012, she'll be adding jewelry to her portfolio. "I am dying to do jewelry," she says. "I'm gagging."
