Lily Allen told a London radio station yesterday she plans to take a break from the music industry to focus on a fashion busines, and a concert in March of 2010 will be her last performance for the foreseeable future.
It's no surprise Allen will join the ranks of celebrities bitten by the fashion bug, as she's been in its inner circle sine Karl Lagerfeld asked her to appear in a series of Chanel accessories ads and to perform live at the Chanel spring runway show.
As for the boutique she plans to open, called Lucy in Disguise, it will be a joint venture with her sister and provide occasion based clothing to rent, not to purchase.
"It's about making fashion democratic," Allen said. "It's about getting really nice clothes but letting people rent them for affordable prices so they can go out and feel like a million dollars and it won't cost them a million dollars."
