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.”
