Acting, singing and now designing — what can’t she do? Sarah Hyland is not only the new face of Candie’s, but also the brand’s first-ever creative director, the clothing line announced in a statement on Wednesday, April 13.
As creative director, the Modern Family actress, 25, will use her love of the arts to set the mood for Candie’s Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 global campaigns. She’ll also style the looks in the Kohl’s-exclusive label’s back-to-school campaign.
“I grew up looking at Candie’s ads and hearing my friends’ experiences as Candie’s girls, but the added influence of being named the first creative director is really exciting for me,” Hyland said in a statement. “I love fashion; it’s a part of who I am.”
The actress, who can next be seen in ABC’s musical remake of Dirty Dancing, added, “I love that I get to have influence on this line because not only are the clothes really fashion-forward, but they are offered at an affordable price point, which means fans of mine can afford what we’re selling.”
While the award-winning actress is the first creative director, she joins a long line of celebrity models for the brand, including Britney Spears, Vanessa Hudgens, Lea Michele, Hayden Panettiere and Bella Thorne.
