Known as one of Country music’s most stylish women, in 2016, Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town took her fashionable eye to the design studio to create her own clothing line, “Fair Child,” for Macy’s Department Stores. The collection combines Fairchild’s edgy trendsetting red carpet looks with her Rock-influenced concert outfits to create the ultimate chic high-end fashions.

Forever a fan of fashion, Fairchild fell for design early, mixing and matching pieces and patterns to create unique looks, including her own prom dress. Personally involved in every step of the design process, you can be assured her attention to detail will be passed on to every garment created in her name.

“Outside of writing songs and performing, fashion is definitely my passion. I view it a lot like telling a story in a song,” Fairchild remarked in an interview with Sounds Like Nashville. “I think an outfit tells a story, and I think when there’s something interesting or surprising or a little twist, that’s what makes a great song and it’s the same thing that makes a great outfit. I’m so grateful to Macy’s for giving me this opportunity.”

In an interview conducted by Warner Music Artist Services’ VP of Global Consumer Products, Alix Kram, Fairchild — joined by Kelly Jarrell from Sandbox Entertainment, the company responsible pairing Fairchild and Macy’s — we’ll hear how Fairchild found the perfect home for her clothing line, the considerations she made when choosing a brand partner, and how together Fairchild, Sandbox, and Macy’s continue to enhance their partnership and adapt to the demands of their followers.
