Willow Smith has gotten involved with yet another cool fashion project.

Will Smith's daughter Willow Smith is adding sock designer to her resume with a new collection for Stance Socks.

The 15 year old collaborated with the novelty accessory brand to create Miss Dazey, a line featuring nine styles conceived of by the budding fashionista.

In an interview with U.S. Vogue magazine, Willow explains why she was drawn to design socks over other types of apparel.

"Designing socks is very interesting because they are items of clothing that aren’t seen a lot," she notes. "For me, socks can emit energy through you - even if nobody sees them. They have a message on them that radiates through your entire being... at least for me they do."

Willow adds, "I choose the projects that are going to push unity and expression into the world in the most intelligent and artistic way possible."

The teenager follows in the footsteps of Rihanna, who created her own collection for Stance last summer (15).

Willow, who recently became a model for Marc Jacobs' autumn/winter 2015 campaign, isn't the only fashion forward star in the Smith family - her older brother Jaden Smith currently fronts Louis Vuitton's Spring 2016 campaign for womenswear.

Marc Jacobs previously revealed he selected Willow as one of his muses for the collection because he respects her artistry.

"Ever since our first Juergen Teller ad in 1998 which featured Kim Gordon on stage wearing my dress, I have always preferred collaborating with the people who inspire me to give new life to the clothes we show on our runway,” he wrote on his Instagram account last summer (15) in a caption attached to an image of Willow posing for his autumn/winter 2015 campaign.
