Music fans across the United States will soon be able to wear clothes inspired by stars of the Popstars TV programme after its producers announced plans to release a line of women's clothing inspired by the hit reality show.

Stone Stanley Entertainment has agreed a deal with Wet Seal Inc to create The Popstars Collection, which will be sold at more than 450 stores nationwide.

Last season, Popstars created the band Eden's Crush, the first female band to have their debut single premiere at number one on the record charts. This season's programme will feature a band made of up boys and girls.

Popstars is more than a television show - it's an industry," said David G Stanley, of Stone Stanley Entertainment.

"We wanted to affiliate ourselves with the most dynamic and prolific fashion brand whose influence on today's youth culture is as far reaching as the show itself. Wet Seal is a fashion brand with that degree of influence and we are proud to be working together."

Wet Seal's fashion director, Lenny Parrella, will help establish the fashion direction for Popstars. He will also be responsible for creating the look for the new group as well as The Popstars Collection that launched in Wet Seal stores in late September, whil his company will also sell the winning group's CD in its stores.
