Steven Tyler Discusses Andrew Charles Clothing Line

Andrew CharlesAerosmith's Steven Tyler will be at the famous Macy's store in New York's Herald Square on Friday evening to promote the Andrew Charles brand's line of clothing that he helped inspire.  According to WWD.com, the rocker and his daughters Chelsea Tallarico and Mia Tyler will appear in the department stores display windows to show off the rocker-chic collection's threads.  Tyler also will meet and greet fans and pose for photos with them.

Tyler tells WWD.com that the Andrew Charles line -- which is being produced by Tommy Hilfiger's brother Andy -- is directly influenced by his own unique fashion sense.

"A lot of the stuff we're doing with Andrew is ideas out of my closet, since I never threw anything away, and stuff that I wore on [American] Idol last year," he revealed.  "It's just my favorite s**t to wear…zippered-up bell bottoms, where inside the zipper I put a red handkerchief inside blue jeans.  When you open the zippers, you see the handkerchiefs.

He also revealed that he wasn't initially sold on the ideas the designers presented to him.

"I didn't love it in the beginning," he admitted.  "I told them exactly what my vision was, and as it went on, they decided to go in that direction a little bit more.  I was so taken back by what Andy laid out and showed me in the beginning, compared with what we wound up with in the end.  It went from 1 to 10.  We worked so well together.  We came up with such great styles, and some really cool prints and some great dresses."

Tyler also is serving as the face of the clothing line along with his daughter Chelsea.  He explained that he had to convince the reluctant 22-year-old to take the modeling gig, but she turned out to be a natural.

"[I] told [Chelsea] I'd love to do this with you. It's going to be huge," he recalled.  "She's in art school, and she doesn't want to be huge.  She's already got a huge daddy…When we were done with the pictures…with Chelsea's face, it just took the whole project over the top.  She just got signed with a modeling agency [IMG Models]."

Asked to sum up his fashion style, the iconic singer said, "Over the top, old school, a mixture of now and then, with rock and chic.  Funky, but chic, with a side order of sexy."
