Cynthia Rowley is getting candid about the future of her fashion empire.
While the designer is mom to two grown daughters—Kit Keenan, 23, and Gigi Powers, 18—it’s unlikely that they’ll be taking over her eponymous label any time soon, she recently revealed.
“They don’t want to work as hard as I do,” Cynthia told The Daily Mail in an interview published March 6. “They’re not really interested.”
The 54-year-old went on to explain that Kit, whose father is sculptor William Keenan Jr., “is in the fashion world but she’s not a designer.” Meanwhile, Cynthia said Gigi, who she shares with husband Bill Powers, is “still in high school.”
So, what is Cynthia’s plan for her widely popular brand then? As she put it, “I’m just going to work until I’m 110 and ride bikes.”
Cynthia launched her fashion collection back in the ’80s after studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since then, the line has expanded from clothing and accessories to include home decor, eyewear and fragrances.
