This year is starting out great for young country singer Taylor Swift. She’s scheduled to appear on an episode of CSI this season and her new dress collection will be on Wal-mart racks this month.
She joined with l.e.i. to create the collection of $14 dresses. Seems like a shrewd move considering this country’s economic doldrums.
“Sundresses are my favorite things to wear,” Swift told New York magazine. “In the summer, I automatically want to look bohemian.”
She’s not pretending to be the designer, either. She’s leaving that to the professionals, but she’ll have some say in the collection.
“I don’t look at it like I’m branching out as a designer. It’s not the Taylor Swift designer line or whatever,” she says of the line.
“I like people who have worked their entire lives to become designers. I think that they have their place as designers and I have my place as a musician, and I’m going to pretty much stick to that.”
