Zayn Malik: Budding fashion designer?

Zayn Malik is adding to his skill set and trying his hand at fashion design, of all things. 

News has broken that the former One Direction member is designing a capsule collection with Italian luxe label Versus Versace. 

It was probably only a matter of time before Zayn ventured into the fashion world - after all he is dating model of the moment Gigi Hadid. This year their steamy Vogue shoot and artistic ‘Pillowtalk’ video has seen ‘Zigi’ crowned fashion’s power couple.

Nowadays, Zayn’s more likely to be spotted on the FROW at Fashion Week shows than performing.

The singer’s Versus Versace collaboration seems a good fit: after all, Versus is Versace’s rebellious younger brand - and Zayn’s nothing if not edgy. No photos of the collection have been released yet, but we imagine there will be plenty of simplistic designs, brooding hues and some badass vibes.  

The 23-year-old heartthrob is already a fan of the brand. “I think Versus has always been a very cool brand and is a great brand for me and for people in my generation,” he told The New York Times.

The his and hers collection will be available in May 2017. It’s probably going to be super cool and unaffordable, but, hey, we’ll all get to see Zayn modelling it, so we can’t really complain.
