Carrie Underwood showing at NYFW

Carrie Underwood is presenting her CALIA by Carrie Underwood range at New York Fashion Week next month.

The country singer has a fitness and lifestyle range called CALIA by Carrie Underwood with Dick’s Sporting Goods. It's sold exclusively through the sports retailer, but next month the star is planning to broaden her line's horizons by hosting a presentation.

On September 10 Carrie will show off her designs at The HQ in the Big Apple, a new venue being used during the bi-annual event, and guests will be able to purchase items immediately.

“I’ve been a spectator at Fashion Week a few times, but this is the first time I’ll be involved,” she told WWD, adding that she feels frustrated when she has to wait six months before purchasing garments seen on the runway. “I sit in the audience and say, ‘Oh, I love that,’ but then realise, ‘Oh, I have to wait.’ But with this, people can see what we’re working on right now and buy it immediately. I love that and I hope they will, too.”

Carrie is choosing the soundtrack for the show and will also make a speech about her collection. Despite remaining tight-lipped about her talk, it's thought the blonde beauty will announce an extension of the line.

It's a personal project for Carrie, who was involved in every step of the process. She regularly meets with the team to discuss ideas and often looks for inspiration in her own closet.

“[The sweaters are] super comfy and easy to pull on... And we also have some really great printed tights in rich colours that are very warm," she added.

Prices start at around $30 and go up to $85.

Speaking about her own fitness regime, Carrie admits workouts happen sporadically since she became a mother to son Isaiah with her husband Mike Fisher earlier this year. When she does exercise, she opts for running, boxing and hot yoga.
