Jennifer Lopez Talks About Her Failed Collection

Jennifer Lopez's first line SweetfaceSinger-actress-American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez admits that her first foray into fashion was a huge disappointment. Lopez teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger's brother Andy to launch her own clothing range, Sweetface, in 2001 but now admits it wasn't what she expected as she felt "trapped" by it.

"I just felt like I never got a fair chance to do it right. And on top of it, I felt like I was trapped in a situation I couldn't get out of, and my name was stamped on things that I didn't believe in," she told the New York Times newspaper.

Although the line closed, Jennifer didn't let it put her off designing another line - this time she has teamed up with Tommy and her husband Marc Anthony to create a fashion collection with Kohls. They are all confident the line will be a success because Jennifer has lots of control over it.

"The difference this time around is that Jennifer is fully engaged with a company that is professionally staffed to really develop anything she wants, from towels to knee-high suede boots. Literally, her wish is their command," Tommy said of the line.
