Eva Longoria will make her debut at New York Fashion Week next month, WWD has reported. The actress is due to present her eponymous line, which is an affordable collection.

Longoria will show on 13 September as part of Kia Style 360's roster, which will involve a 360-degree live stream of the show. Other newcomers to join the schedule in this way are fellow actresses Rosario Dawson and Alysa Reiner, who you will recognise from Orange is the New Black.

Longoria will no doubt be taking tips from her close friend and fellow fashion designer Victoria Beckham, who has been showing her eponymous line at New York Fashion Week for almost 10 years. This will not however mark Longoria's first foray into the fashion world.

Last year, the actress teamed up with US retailer The Limited on two collections, before moving the project to her own website and calling it The Eva Longoria Collection. Now, she is putting on her very first fashion show.

"People keep asking me why it's taken me so long to do a clothing line, because I've been wanting to do it forever," she told The Hollywood Reporter at the time of her first collection. "I was offered a lot of different deals – it was basically to just put your name on something. But I wanted to be part of the process. I wanted to design, I wanted to help in the sourcing, I wanted to be involved in buying the artwork (for prints and graphics), everything. And to do that, it is its own full-time job."
