Dolly Parton is launching a fashion line. Legendary country singer Dolly Parton is launching a fashion, jewellery and homewares collection.
The star has signed a deal with IMG, which aims to develop her as a lifestyle brand, according to WWD.
Parton spoke of her excitement about the deal, saying in a statement: ““I am excited to be working with IMG on a global scale to give my fans products that they will cherish for years to come. You might even see my mug on a mug.”
IMG licensing vice president Gary Krakower said: “Dolly Parton is an international icon and we are thrilled to be working with her.”
“Together, we look forward to building cohesive lifestyle brand products that will celebrate Dolly and bring her iconic style and personality to her millions of fans worldwide in engaging new ways.”
And while this marks the first time the much-loved musician has put her name on a fashion line, there’s no doubt how influential her style has been other designers.
The star’s likeness has recently appeared on sweaters and jackets as part of Gucci‘s spring 2019 collection, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James line created a collection inspired by the ‘9 to 5’ singer and the Grammy Museum in LA created an exhibit of her over-the-top, glittery stage costumes.
