Singer Beth Ditto, frontwoman of the Gossip and a fixture on runways from to Jean Paul Gaultier to Marc Jacobs, is starting her own plus-size fashion line. Her self-titled clothing line will be out in February, and it's going to be inspired by Ditto's love of prints, silks, embroidery, and vintage.

"This line is by us, for us, period." Ditto said in a press release. "It's my lifelong dream to get to design real clothes for big people, clothes that are comfortable and cool."

To kick off her line, Ditto collaborated with her friend Gaultier on a limited edition T-shirt. The T-shirt features a lithograph print on one side, and a 3-D, hand-sewn appliqué corset on the back that can actually lace up. It's a nod to the iconic bullet bra corset from Gaultier, who also designed Ditto's wedding dress. The T-shirt is $165 and is available now in sizes 1x and 2x at, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Girls Rock Camp Foundation. This is the first time a Gaultier creation will be available up to a size US 30.
