Sweeney told the fashion outlet that she has long been a fan of the label, dating back to her childhood.
'In third grade, my best friend got us matching Tory headbands for Christmas, which stands out to me so much,' Sweeney said. 'I’d never had something so nice; I was so excited I wore that headband every day for weeks. I’m sure my mom thought something was wrong with me, but it was the first nice thing I’d ever had.
'Growing up in a small town, you’d see Tory’s store [in the mall], and that was where everyone wanted to be able to shop.'
Sweeney said that collaborating with Burch on the brand's holiday ad campaign cast year 'felt very natural and fluid,' and that she 'completely hit it off' with Burch when they met.
Burch said of Sweeney, according to Vogue, that 'she is unapologetic and empowered in her approach to acting and business,' and 'one of the most talented and relevant young actors working today.'
