Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn Coming to New York Fashion Week
It’s been three years since Avril Lavigne introduced her Abbey Dawn clothing line, but lately, the singer is breathing new life into the rock ‘n’ roll-themed collection — and plans to show off her latest creations next month at New York Fashion Week.
“I’ve done a fashion show there before and it’s, like, kind of a really big deal,” she told PEOPLE at the MAGIC Abbey Dawn after-party at PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace on Tuesday. “I’m on tour in Europe but I made sure I can do it. I have two hours to do it, then I leave. I fly for like 24 hours but its really important and I’m super honored.”
Though Lavigne will be in a serious time crunch, she said she’s particularly pumped about showing off her newest pieces. “Heels, footwear. And now I have men’s stuff so it feels complete,” she shared. “It’s my brand, it’s my baby. It’s the first time its a full collection of everything, outside of clothing. There are so many different categories.”
With a moniker referring to a nickname Lavigne had as a child, the line is “designed for girls who want to express themselves with fashion,” she says. “It’s something I’m really proud of. It’s a lot of fun having a clothing line.”
