Dolly Parton‘s new “9 to 5” is a job in the fashion world.
The singer, 73, just signed her first exclusive global licensing deal with IMG, and will begin building a lifestyle empire.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the country legend plans to launch clothing, jewelry, accessories and home goods through the new multiyear deal. “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,” the Grammy winner said in a statement to WWD.
While this marks the first time Parton has put her name on a fashion line, her style has inspired other designers for decades. The star’s likeness 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 Parton and the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles created an exhibit of her glittery, over-the-top stage costumes.
And since pop culture’s obsession with cowboy-chic style is currently at an all-time high, it might just be the perfect time for Parton to get into the game.
