Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson released the first look at her new fashion collection inspired by her book Live Original on Wednesday.
The former Dancing with the Starscontestant teamed up designer Sherri Hill to create a line of dresses inspired by her book and shared a video of the Spring 2015 collection to her Instagram page.
In the video — which features an original song, Miss Incredible, by her DWTS dance partner Mark Ballas — the 17-year-old struts her stuff in youthful dresses at Venice Beach in Los Angeles, California.
Robertson has been modeling for a little over a year now, but she told RadarOnline that her experience with other models on the runway during New York Fashion Week was not the best of times.
“Many of them did not say a word to me,” Robertson told the website. “They just looked at me like they had icicles in their eyes. They cared way too much about their outward appearance. Confidence is an inside thing. I could have totally lost it over the comments people made and the icy looks they gave me, but I didn’t. God has been training me my whole life … to be strong and confident.”
The Sherri Hill collection is inspired from Robertson’s book Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values.
Robertson said in an Instagram post at the time of the book’s release that she hoped the book would instill confidence in readers and help them to know God just a little better.
& today is the day. My book Live Original is out. I am thankful to God for blessing me with the opportunity to write this book. I pray that many lives are touched through this book. I pray people realize that they are a beautiful child of God, and become confident in that. So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. (Hebrews 10:35 NIV)
