Kelly to design plus size clothes

Kelly Osbourne is set to design her own plus-size fashion range.
The Fashion Police presenter - who lost five stone in weight after appearing on Dancing With The Stars in 2009 - announced at the BeautyCon Summit in Los Angeles she has finally been given the go-ahead on her clothing line, according to Fashionista.com.
Kelly, 28, told reporters: "I had one of the most exciting meetings of my life this week - it pretty much green-lit my clothing line.
"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!'."
The daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne admitted her alternative style was not for everyone, but insisted what was important for her was to design clothes that could be worn by all sizes.
Kelly said: "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.
"You know I was having fun but no one takes notice of a fat girl in fashion. That's the truth! It's sad. That's why I love women like Beth Ditto who are doing their own clothes. That's why when my line comes out I'll never make anything that won't be translated to plus-size as well. Because everyone deserves to wear fashion."
Following her dramatic weight loss, Kelly told Us Weekly how it had enabled her to experiment with clothes a lot more.
She said: "When I lost weight and started to wear the clothes I always wanted to wear but didn't fit into, that's when it really started to change. It did give me a bit of a bittersweet feeling towards the fashion world."
