Actor Antonio Banderas is the latest celebrity to show an interest in becoming a designer – following on from Hollywood star Brad Pitt and rapper Kanye West.
“There’s something that I am going to do, I am going to study clothing design,” said the 54-year-old who expressed a preference for London’s Central St Martin’s School.
“This is something that has been in my mind for a long time.”
Banderas is best known for his roles in films such as Evita, The Mask of Zorro and Shrek, as the voice of Puss in Boots.
“Of course I won’t stop my professional life, I’ll continue acting, directing and writing… but this is a new thing,” he said. “I want the knowledge to take steps in that territory in the future.”
Kanye West debuted his fashion collection with Adidas while Brad Pitt has launched a furniture collection and has been linked with architect Frank Gehry on plans for homes for people hit by natural disasters.
