'LA Ink' star Kat Von D has launched her own clothing line.
The Tattoo artist and TV personality has launched a collection featuring coats, shirts, tights and dresses, which appear to have taken inspiration from classic and gothic sources.
Describing the collection, a statement on her website reads: "for Fall 2011 the overall theme was influenced by Love Letters. "Over the years I’ve saved every single letter, note, and card given to me by loves. Reading through them, each one triggers beautiful feelings, some are more melancholic than others, but all beautiful none the less. I thought about my favorite love story of all time, which is the tale of Ludwig van Beethoven's 'Immortal Beloved' - a mystery that even now has never been truly solved. When I put on the "Beethoven" jacket, or the Fur Elise pants, I feel tragically romantic". Kat Von D .
"Kat has played with a diverse spectrum of textures in the fabrics, and subtle details to everything: from the buttons and hardware to her interpretation of a toile de jouy pattern used for the lining of many of the pieces."
The pieces available on her site are from The Fall, Winter and a Love Letters collection.
Kat revealed she sees the collection as an extension of her work as a body artist, and in keeping with her established style. explaining: "The purpose of me creating this clothing line is to share what Mom taught me.
"Express yourself through your art - whether it's your drawings in a sketchpad, tattoos on your skin, the shade of your lipstick, or the clothes that you wear."
