Mary Alice Haney launched her eponymous line just two years ago, and has already racked up an A-list roster of fans including Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift's designer friend wanted to "burst into tears" when the pop star wore an ensemble she had put together.

Taylor has been collaborating closely with designer and celebrity stylist Mary Alice Haney of late, with the pair working on upping the Bad Blood singer's sartorial credibility.

Mary Alice loves working with Taylor and became emotional when the star wore her one-shouldered black sequined mini dress to model Gigi Hadid's 21st birthday last month (Apr16).

"I wanted to burst into tears when I saw Taylor in that one-shoulder dress. I'm loving Haney for Taylor's new look," she told Harper's Bazaar, adding that Taylor is "a doll" to work with.

Mary Alice enjoys teaming up with the 26-year-old as she has evolved her style from "teeny bopper" to a more mature fashion forward look. She also loves how, with the encouragement of her stylist Joseph Cassell, Taylor recently decided to cut her hair into a cropped style and dye it platinum blonde.

Mary Alice launched her eponymous line just two years ago, and has already racked up an A-list roster of fans including Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon, who she considers a close friend, model Chrissy Teigen, and Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell.

Los Angeles-based Mary Alice credits her growing success to the fact that her outfits are both versatile and easy to wear.

"I design with LA women in mind," she explained. "It's the idea that every woman should look as good as Taylor Swift does when she's heading out to a red carpet event. I think that's why other stylists have really responded to my line, because you throw it on and you're going to look glamorous."

Mary Alice adds she would like to see the likes of model Kendall Jenner in her designs and is currently looking at expanding her line to allow for more customisation and collaborations.

But she doesn't plan on adhering to any sort of fashion calendar and is instead designing her collections so they can be launched as soon as possible in stores.

"It's the right season for you to buy. I always felt like it was a silly way to shop, buying coats in the middle of the summer," she smiled.
