Avril Lavigne to launch own fashion line… yay!

Avril Lavigne

That yay in the title may or may not be sarcastic, I haven’t decided yet. A surprisingly large amount of people seem to find HYA by searching for what she wears so clearly some people like her style, and I love that ‘Girlfriend’ song she did, but there’s just something about celebrities releasing clothing lines that seems doomed to mediocrity, so who knows how it’ll turn out. From the AP:

The edgy, pop-rock star’s clothing line “Abbey Dawn” was named after her childhood nickname.

“I actually am the designer,” she told Newsweek for editions on newsstands Monday. “I try everything on and approve it all.”

Hmmmm, I don’t know about you, but I was under the impression that designing clothes meant actually designing them, rather than trying them on and saying “yep, that’ll do, cha-ching!”

    HAHA! wow I think anyone that puts together a real tech pack and handles phone calls/emails from factories all day would be very irked by that….

    I was going to be snarky about that quote but you handled it form. That’s pretty funny.

    Funny, I just wrote a blog post yesterday about Rachel Bilson “designing her own line” of clothing that’s going to get put out by DKNY.

    They just make it look so easy to do, when really it’s a royal pain in the ass.

    I’m an Avril fan who lives near Napanee Ontario where she grew up and also have my own Avril Lavigne blog.

    So naturally I was excited to hear about her new clothing line (even though it won’t be available in Canada until after the US) and decided to find out exactly where her childhood nickname “Abbey Dawn” – that she’s also using for her new designs – came from…

    I’m pretty sure I found it too, and I even did an article for our local newspaper about how I tracked down the REAL Abbey Dawn with pictures and a map link etc. It turns out Abbey Dawn was a very appropriate nickname for Avril as a little girl, considering the career she chose as an adult – check out the Indian name for the famous bell they had at Abbey Dawn! :)

    I made my name here link directly to the post I did, or go to this page here:

    Hope you like it!
