She appeared on Monday’s (April 14) “Good Morning America” to talk about and show off the new, nautical-themed designs. While it seems to be a rather odd departure for the actress and singer, Deschanel points out that she has been interested in fashion for years. “I grew up sewing my own clothes,” she explains. “There were a lot of details that were things that I’d used on dresses that I’d made.”
The 16 pieces in the fashion collection apparently took two years to realize, with Deschanel and Hilfiger working together throughout. “He was so collaborative,” Deschanel says with enthusiasm.
Fans who missed the mini fashion show on “Good Morning America” will soon get another chance to see some of Deschanel’s designs in the “New Girl” finale. “Our last episode takes place on a crew ship, so these are all very nautical,” she says. “I just put them in the mix, and three of them got chosen.”
“New Girl” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on FOX.
