Apparel retailer Goody's Family Clothing is launching an exclusive new fashion line by actress Ashley Judd this autumn.

The line will include three new labels - AJ, Love, Ashley and Ashley Judd - with "everyday casual appeal" including organic and knit tees and sweaters and an extensive denim range.

The label also encompasses career casual coordinates ranging from blazers, blouses and skirts to cardigan sets and trousers.

"I'm thrilled to be involved in a clothing line that provides simple, lovely solutions for women's wardrobes," said Ashley Judd.

"I've always loved items that you can throw on easily and know that you'll feel and look good. This line does just that, while keeping with the best of current styles and trends."

Goody's says Judd played an integral role in the planning and development of the line, including "leading shopping trips with designers so they could understand her style, brainstorming ideas and editing the line. She was involved from concept to creation."

"My line is made of quality materials, manufactured in factories with the highest international human right standards and the clothes are both stylish and designed to fit the body comfortably," Judd adds.

Judd has appeared in films such as "Bug," "Come Early Morning," "De Lovely," "Kiss the Girls" and "Double Jeopardy."

Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, Goody's sells moderately priced apparel through more than 380 stores.

Merchandise includes labels such as Adidas, Dockers, Levi's, Nike, and Reebok, and the company is also the exclusive retailer of Duck Head. Goody's also has its own private label clothing lines for men, women and children.

Judd is the latest in a line of actresses to put their names to clothing lines. Last week former Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker unveiled her own fashion label called Bitten.
