Rocker Sheryl Crow was inspired to design her own fashion line so her friends could buy affordable clothing.
The All I Wanna Do singer launched her new denim-based budget collection, Bootheel Trading Co. By Sheryl Crow, last week (07Aug08).
And Crow didn't have to go far to gain inspiration for her line - she simply looked to her own wardrobe.
She tells People.com, "I have an incredible amount of vintage that I've collected over the years.
"My style is very Americana. I gravitate to pieces that are American by nature, either western or Depression-era.
She adds, "I do almost everything in jeans, except sleep. Denim has become so high-priced as of late. My friends back home don't want to spend $250 (GBP125) for a pair of jeans. I want them to be able to walk into a medium-priced store and be able to afford a cool pair of jeans for less than 100 bucks (dollars)."
