Lily Aldridge - Lily Aldridge launches debut fashion line

Lily Aldridge has designed her first clothing line.

The Victoria's Secret model has teamed up with Velvet by Graham & Spencer to create a ''laid-back luxe'' collection of 13 pieces, which reflects the star's own ''mix of boho rock-and-roll glamour'' as well as the brand's classic aesthetic.

Lily told Vogue.co.uk: ''It was a very natural collaboration. I've been working for Velvet for 10 years so when they asked me to do this it was an easy yes.

''As a model you have such an amazing glimpse into fashion and what the designers are creating and how it fits. I wanted to create a line that was cool and easy to wear. You can wear every piece of my collection for day or night.''

The 27-year-old brunette became the face of Velvet in 2004 and was encouraged by creative directors Jenny Graham and Toni Spencer to make her design debut.

Each purse-friendly item is named after one of Lily's friends or family members and retails between £59 and £196.

The striking star added: ''I would love to keep designing. I love fashion and to create a line like this makes me very proud - I wasn't sure how to start it, but I'm so happy my first venture was with Velvet.

''I designed a piece in my collection for Velvet in navy and white that instantly adds a touch of Parisian chic to any outfit. A military jacket also always works for spring. I designed one for my little sister Ruby.''

Lily's Velvet by Graham & Spencer collection is available at matchesfashion.com.
