“I love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s clothing line, Elizabeth and James, and I love how Justin Bieber dresses,” Amanda tells In Touch of her style muses.
The 27-year-old, who retired from acting three years ago, has decided to reinvent herself and start fresh as a designer in NYC.
“My line will be a mixture of sick styles, and it’s going to be for everybody,” Amanda tells In Touch. The star has also tweeted about the fact that her clothing line is already in the works.
And if the duds she designs reflect any bit of her personal style, we’re going to see a lot of edgy pieces. Over the past several months, the star has been getting increasingly funkier with her wardrobe choices, baring more and more skin with each Twitpic. In fact, Amanda tweeted a photo on May 1 wearing nothing but hot pants and ripped fishnets.
While many are concerned for the wellbeing of the once-actress, Amanda’s pal and Hairspray co-star Nikki Blonsky, stands behind her friend 100 percent.
“She is just living her life and doing what she wants to do and I totally support that for her,” Nikki admits. “She’s happy. I don’t think that’s a breakdown, but a breakthrough.
So will Amanda still be financially stable if her new goal as a designer doesn’t work out?
“Yes!” she confirms to the mag. “I’ll design clothes because I want to, not because I need the money.”
Would you buy any items from Amanda's clothing line?
