Los Angeles: Rapper and actress Queen Latifah is set to launch her own clothing line which will feature clothes and accessories for women of all sizes.

The curvy `Chicago` star plans to design her own line The Queen Collection for the Home Shopping Network (HSN), including clothes and accessories for women between the sizes of 2 to 24, reported People online.

"This is something I have wanted to do for a very long time.
I`ve been offered a lot of deals for clothing lines and actually started one that didn`t quite get off the ground but this is like a full circle moment for me.

"This is a young 14-year old, 17-year old and 22-year old Dana trying to go shopping and actually finding the things she wants to wear or going on HSN and ordering the clothes she likes because they`re there and they are in her size," said Latifah.

With the line set to launch in August, the 41-year-old actress has already chosen the bag line as her favourite from the collection.

"I have a bag fetish. I`ll have on sweatpants and a USD 3000 purse. I don`t deny myself, bags are the one thing I`ll allow myself to splurge on. I think the bag line is going to be really good. It`s versatile so it`s not going to look like the same bag from one collection to the next. There`s something for everyone.

"I definitely want to be able to rock my bag. I figured, if I can rock it, why shouldn`t other people be able to?"
