JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may be ending their personal relationship, but their professional one lives on.

Anthony and Lopez launched their fashion lines — the Marc Anthony Collection and the Jennifer Lopez Collection — on Wednesday.

Forty-two-year-old Anthony marked the launch with a ribbon cutting at Kohl's department store in downtown Jersey City, New Jersey, Lopez did not attend, but Anthony says they collaborated a lot on the work.

He says: "I always had Jennifer as a soundboard and vice versa. I'm really happy about her line and I saw all the work that she put into it."

The pair announced their split in July after seven years of marriage.

The couple has 3-year-old twins named Max and Emme. Anthony said he's "really proud of" 42-year-old Lopez.
