MIAMI (AP) _ Mexican singer-actress Thalia is trying for a hit _ in the fashion world.
She launched Kmart's Thalia Sodi collection at a store here Wednesday. The line will include women's clothing, accessories, footwear, eyeglasses, linens and home furnishings.
The collection is one of several commercial projects that she has in mind. ``Since I was little I've had that vision of a businesswoman inside me,'' she said.
Financial terms of her Kmart contract weren't disclosed. Kmart executives have said they expect the line to generate between $300 million and $600 million in sales annually.
Distribution is to extend to 335 stores, a company spokesman said.
Kmart is using Thalia's self-titled English language CD to promote the collection.
