Now I never like to pick and choose who or what to write about over another, but like I said on my other recent article on Avril, if you’re Canadian you are on my radar. It’s great to see Avril launch such a successful career in singing and now in fashion. This 27 year old progressed from that famous skater boy song and now brought the skater girl fashion straight to New York!
Singer and fashion icon Avril launched Abbey Dawn in 2008. First being sold in Kohl’s in the US and Boat house in Canada (I remember opening day downtown!). Since then Avril’s line has expanded to other stores, locations, and counties. Now across not only America but in Europe you can buy her style. Her fashion is just like her style and personality, skater punk-rock style and has grown not only in locations but even quality of the designs and material.
It’s not the norm ,but the punk-style fashion that walked down the runway was definitely a kick for NYC fashion week. Between the t-shirts, mini-dresses, pants, denim and more, Avril wasn’t there to be like everyone else. Out came the skulls, leather, studs, straps, ripped clothing and different colours. Much along the lines of what you would expect to wear for the warmth of spring, just kicked up with some cool attitude.
The designer herself wore a white and black blazer, a black top and a pair of black pants with fade’s white stripes on the sides. And the shoes!! Avril wore a pair of black wedges with silver studs along the front and sides of the shoe. These studs matched the studs she had in her hair! The star of this runway was Kylie Jenner who made her debut last year at Avril’s runaway show and again this year. All models looked amazing and did well!
If you didn’t know, as a side note Avril has a foundation. The Avril Lavigne Foundation R.O.C.K.S. Respect, Opportunity, Choices, Knowledge, and Strength in support of children and youth living with serious illnesses or disabilities. (http://theavrillavignefoundation.org/about) Take a look and help spread the word. It was after the fashion show and completion of spring fashion that Avril announced she may be making her own wedding dress.
