Bob Marley's daughter has been put in charge of designing Jamaica's sportswear for the 2012 London Olympics.
Cedella Marley has been appointed the official designer for Team Jamaica's uniforms, which will be worn by the country's athletes competing in the London Olympics and Paralympics.
The 44 year old reveals her collection was influenced by reggae legend Bob, who lost his battle with cancer in 1981, as well as singer and style icon Grace Jones.
She says, "Dad has been a big part of everything that I've done with this collection. I'm all over the place with pride... If Dad was here, I think he would be pinching me now and I would be pinching him going, 'Can you believe this?'
"I love playing with patterns, playing with textures. If you look at Dad and (his back-up singers) the I Threes and Grace Jones and put that together, you can get an idea for the look and feel of the collection."
Cedella isn't the only celebrity offspring who has been commissioned to design Olympics kits - Sir Paul MCCartney's daughter Stella will outfit Team Great Britain.
