NEW YORK—Kendall and Kylie Jenner are taking a cue from big sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian—launching their own clothing line.
Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 15, teamed up with PacSun to put out clothes aimed at teen girls.
“We watched our sisters do their clothing line (Kardashian Kollection for Sears) -- when the opportunity came to us, we jumped on it. We’ve always been interested in fashion and all that so it was great and worked out perfectly,” Kylie said in a recent interview.
The line has a California feel because the girls are from there.
Both girls model. Last week they walked in the annual Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show in New York with their mother, Kris. They insist they’re not competitive with one another.
“No, not at all. I think we’re both in two kind of separate areas,” said Kendall, who is more serious about a modeling career.
Kylie, on the other hand, would like to put out a line one day on her own. She also would like to try acting.
The teens are also taking a page from their older sisters by entering the publishing world. The Kardashian sisters have already released two books, a memoir and a novel. The Jenner sisters are writing a sci-fi, young adult book that’s due out later this year.
One way they’re not in a rush to emulate their sisters, though, is by starring in their own spin-off show.
“We’re so young. I want to keep some part of my childhood private. I’ve been doing this since I was 9 years old,” said Kylie.
