Flaming toasters, flying pancakes, family squabbles: the Dunphy’s kitchen has seen it all — and now the walls are talking.

At a preview of her latest collection in New York City today, Vergara said that Modern Family viewers will also see accessories, bedding and more items from her eponymous label on the show this season.

“Most of the ideas for Gloria’s style are [mine],” the actress explained. “I kind of created the way Gloria dressed. Everybody loved it, when we started the show everybody was like ‘oh my god Gloria dresses fantastic!’ and so I started to bring to the collection the same ideas that I was bringing to Gloria’s wardrobe.”  READ FULL STORY
