Lily Quits Music For Fashion

with one comment

Popstrel  Lily Allen has packed in her music career to concentrate on a fashion line.

The singer,24, has admitted that she won’t be making another album, instead concentrating on opening a trendy ‘rent-a-frock’ shop with her sister Sarah Owen.

Speaking backstage at the NME Awards Lily said: “I’m not making another album.  It’s a really big commitment to do an album these days.

“People don’t buy music anymore and I don’t want to tie myself to being on the road for three years.”

Lily has some exciting ventures for her progression into fashion. First of all she has started a project with designer Wayne Hemingway, her Lucy In Disguise fashion line and the opening of a clothes rental shop in central London.

Speaking about the clothing line/shop,she said: I’m in the office everyday sourcing clothes and getting really excited. We’ll have loads of amazing stuff that would be really expensive to buy, but girls can come in, hire something for one night and have a laugh’’

The singer will launch her Lucy In Disguise range at the Vintage at Goodwood Festival in August

Lily’s music career has taken a bit of a nosedive of late, with lukewarm reactions to her latest album and sales figures not doing as well as they could. I personally remember her line a few years ago at New Look and not being overly impressed.

So do you think this is a good idea? Is this a natural progression for the star or do you think she should just stick to her day job?

A Lott of Style

with 2 comments

The most exciting news that I’ve heard all week is that Brit-nominated songstress Pixie Lott has agreed to design a new range for Lipsy, my favourite high street designer. The style icon has agreed to design a summer and winter collection for the brand, each revolving around two distinct looks : “Pixie Festival” and “Pixie Party”, and with every purchase Lipsy will also be giving away 3 Pixie Lott downloads, absolutely free!

Pixie said: “I have always been a big fan of Lipsy and regularly shop in their stores. I love what Lipsy stands for and I am very excited at the thought of working with such a talented and creative team. It’s going to be great fun.”

Indeed it seems that Pixie really can’t get enough of Lipsy at the moment, recently being spotted in their sell out black lace prom dress from their new spring/summer collection.

I personally can’t wait for the new collection to hit my local Bank store in Kingston, and add some of Pixie’s ”Festival” look to my holiday suitcase!
