Kelly O gives 'chubby girls' voice

Kelly Osbourne has a plus-size clothing collection in the pipeline and is very excited to have creative control.

Despite her shrinking frame, she's pushing forward with a plus-size clothing line.

Revealing she's already had the initial meetings to kick start the collection, the purple-haired fashionista believes she knows what is needed.

"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," she said at Hollywood's BeautyCon LA Summit.

The Fashion Police presenter is ready to dip her fashionable feet into the world of designing.

Bringing her quirky style to the table, the 28-year-old is excited by the prospect.

"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!'" she continued.

Following her 70lb. weight loss when she appeared on 2009's Dancing with the Stars, Kelly's interest in fashion grew.

Being able to wear new trends changed her attitude to fashion.

"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 of the industry] really started to change.

"It did give me a bit of a bittersweet feeling towards the fashion world. My fashion choices at an early age were really odd and they still are," she admitted.

After a career in music and TV presenting, fashion designer is the next job to be ticked off of Kelly's list.
