LL Cool J, Boy George and Kanye West have all started their own fashion lines, which are expected to be in stores later this year or early next year. LL Cool J's line is a collection of casual menswear called James Todd Smith (the artist's real name) and it was introduced this week at the Magic International convention in Las Vegas.

Boy George has launched a new unisex clothing line, which consists primarily of T-shirts, under three brand names: B-Rude, Really Rude and Rude Core. The collection features images of Boy George such as the artist dressed as a clown and in drag.

Finally, West's fashion line of casual menswear, Pastel, will be distributed by Rocawear, according to the artist.
