No awkwardness here! Though she split from Brody Jenner — and recently became engaged to Chad Kroeger — Avril Lavigne has invited Brody’s half-sis Kylie Jenner to return to the catwalk in her Abbey Dawn fashion show at New York Fashion Week next month. (It’s complicated, we know.) The teen model made a splash when she hit the runway (and brought lots of her siblings) during last year’s show.
Lavigne confirmed the news to PEOPLE this week at the MAGIC fashion trade show in Las Vegas, where she was presenting the latest from her line.
“This is where the buyers are,” she explained. “It’s business, but I’m excited to be here. After seeing everything on paper, everything is finally here. I’m trying to function, but it feels like we’re in a candy store.”
The four-year-old line “is a lot better,” than when it launched in 2008, the singer said. “When I started, it was a cheaper price point and geared toward a younger audience.” Now, “it’s a little hipper, good quality. It appeals to everyone. It’s really great.”
Admitting that she loves dressing her mom and sister — “I do their hair, too,” she shared — Lavigne said she most enjoys dressing up her guy friends. Chad, you’ve been warned! Tell us: Are you interested in seeing the newest offerings from Lavigne’s line?
