She’s best known for being the spirited singer, but Lily Allen’s on-going relationship with fashion is set to cement itself one step further as she announces she’s to quit music and set up her own boutique.
She’s come a long way in the style stakes since her first move into fashion with that collection for New Look , she’s the face of Chanel’s Coco Cocoon bags, launched her own jewellery line, became BFFs with Karl Lagerfeld and sang at his SS10 show for Chanel in Paris , but now she’s taking it one step further as she plans to set up shop in a new venture with her sister.
Lucy in Disguise is the name for her new boutique, which will make designer labels accessible with clothes and outfits available to hire.
â€œIt’s about making fashion democratic, that’s the idea behind it, she told the Daily Mirror. â€œIt’s about getting really nice clothes but letting people rent them for affordable prices so they can go out and feel like a million dollars and it won’t cost them a million dollars.
Well, in principal, we think this sounds like a pretty fab idea.
Oh, and for all you musical maestros, don’t worry , Lily’s not quitting music entirely. She is, in fact, hell bent on starting her own music label.
