Chrissie Hynde has designed an environmentally-friendly clothing line.
The Pretenders singer - who is a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) activist - has teamed up with ex-boyfriend JP Jones to create Fairground Rock, which is aimed at musicians and consists of skinny jeans, leather jackets, cowboy boots, handbags and T-shirts.
Vegetarian Chrissie - who is good friends with designer Stella McCartney - said: "Like most women, I love fashion and clothes. I love handbags and shoes. Everybody will be able to find everything they love in a non-leather version. Fashion should be fun."
No animal skins will be used in the collection, which has already been approved by designers Todd Oldham and John Bartlett.
The name for the range, Fairground Rock, is inspired by JP's childhood as he grew up as the son of a carnival arcade owner.
Chrissie is not the only star to create an environmentally-friendly clothing line.
'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson has designed a range for fair-trade label People Tree, which will show at an eco-festival run by Britain's Prince Charles.
