In the latest episode of ‘MySpace Presents: The Fit’, Avril Lavigne talked about the inspirations behind Abbey Dawn, the Canadian singer/songwriter’s new couture line.
“Denim is an iconic fabric because it can be used in so many different ways, different colors, different cuts, and reflect on people’s own individual style,” Avril said about a fabric that’s used in a line of her clothing line. “I’ve always liked really old, faded jeans and I would take my brother’s old jeans, wear them low because they were too big on me, and I’d cut them off. Two summers later, I’d cut them off shorter as I got older. I’ve always loved jeans because they’re fun. You can rip them, they look cool if they’re faded.”
“I like to mix rock n’ roll stuff like studs and skulls and plaid with more feminine colors like pinks and purples,” Avril said. “My music and my clothes are a reflection of who I am, and it’s been really cool to see that resonate with my fans.”
