Amy Winehouse to design a fashion line for Fred Perry
on Thursday,March 11,2010 22:03
Amy Winehouse may be moving from the recording studio to the design studio, as the soul singer has partnered British clothier Fred Perry to create her own fashion line, Marie Claire reports.
Winehouse has already completed 17 sketches for outfits, which include both clothing and accessories. Her creations feature sharp, clean lines and draw upon her personal style, and all of the drawings integrate her infamous beehive hairstyle.
Future designs are expected to include the singer's signature pieces, including ballet pumps and '50s-style shirtdresses. Winehouse has a bit of experience to call upon for the endeavor, as she collaborated with Peaches Geldof last May to create a capsule collection for British label PPQ.
The songstress - who has been notably missing from the tabloids lately - told the news source that she is "really excited" about the forthcoming line.
"We've been working on it for awhile and it's great to see it finally come to fruition," she added.
USA Today reports that the line is slated to hit stores in October, and the pieces will range between $32 and $150 in price.
