New York Fashion Week is almost here, and one celebrity is gearing up for it in an exciting way.
Kelly Osbourne is developing her own fashion line, which will include plus-sizes. She has been thinking about launching her own clothing line since September of 2012, and now she is one step closer to her dream.
“I had one of the most exciting meetings of my life this week — it pretty much greenlit my clothing line,” Osbourne told Us Weekly at Hollywood’s BeautyCon L.A. Summit event Aug. 24. “When I sat down in this meeting and they said, ‘Yes, you have creative control and of course you can do plus size,’ I was like, ‘It’s happening!'”
In addition to including plus size fashion, Osbourne is looking forward to showcasing her own, unique personality in the line. “It still has to be very me — quirky,” Osbourne said. “[But] that’s me, so I have to [also] have something slightly normal.”
So why has Osbourne waited until now to break into the fashion world with a line of her own? “I’ve always been really into fashion. It’s just that my fashion choices at an early age were really odd and they still are,” Osbourne said. “I have grown to understand, as much as I don’t like it, that the fashion world doesn’t really want to listen to what a little chubby girl has to say. When I lost weight and started to wear the clothes I always wanted to wear but didn’t fit into, that’s when [my perception] really started to change. It did give me a bit of a bittersweet feeling towards the fashion world.”
