“I’m pleased we can do something that I know she would have loved. We are just starting on this collaboration but exciting things are coming!
“Whitney was always a champion of women feeling beautiful whether it was a major event or just for everyday wear, our work with Mac is about creating a line that can meet all of those needs.
“The line will be true to her colours that she loved to work with.”
Houston died on 11 February 2012 after drowning in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills Hilton hotel room.
I Wanna Dance with Somebody, named after the stars famous 1987 dancefloor hit, has been set for a Christmas 2022 release.
