MEXICO CITY - US singer, actress and businesswoman Jennifer Lopez took her fashion line outside the United States for the first time on Monday, launching in Mexico.
Speaking in Spanish, the star - a New Yorker whose parents are from Puerto Rico - said she wanted to make her designs affordable to low-income women who want some glamour in their lives.
"I think that, coming from the Bronx, I have a good urban mix," Lopez, 45, said at a news conference, wearing a black shirt and pants ensemble with a white jacket.
"I'm more interested in doing (designs for working people) instead of luxury."
She inaugurated a store in the capital in co-operation with Mexican retail chain Coppel.
Her line - which includes clothing, accessories and suitcases - will be available in more than 1,000 stores in Mexico
