Published: Updated:

U.S. singer, actress and businesswoman Jennifer Lopez took her fashion line outside the United States for the first time on Monday, launching in Mexico.

Speaking in Spanish, the star -- a New Yorker whose parents are from Puerto Rico -- said she wanted to make her designs affordable to low-income women who want some glamor in their lives.

"I think that, coming from the Bronx, I have a good urban mix," Lopez, 45, said at a news conference, wearing a black shirt and pants ensemble with a white jacket. "I'm more interested in doing (designs for working people) instead of luxury."

She inaugurated a store in the capital in cooperation with Mexican retail chain Coppel. Her line -- which includes clothing, accessories and suitcases -- will be available in more than 1,000 stores in Mexico.
