    Move over, Kanye. There’s a new celebrity fashion designer in town and we couldn’t quite believe our eyes when we checked out his post this week on Instagram.

    Following in the footsteps of Emma Watson (who graduated from Brown University last year) everyone’s favourite Puss in Boots, Antonio Banderas, has swapped his swashbuckling sword for a sewing machine.

    Yup, that’s right: Antonio has enrolled at Central Saint Martins fashion college in London. Go, Antonio!

    Announcing his new direction on his own Instagram account, the Hollywood actor declared: ‘The 2nd week of studies at Central St Martin begins. Intense, exciting, serious and fun all the same time.’


    Revealing all to – again, you couldn’t make this up – ‘Loose Women’ Antonio explained: ‘It’s something that has been on my mind for a long time. Central Saint Martins is probably one of the best schools in the world and so I am going to start studying with them. It makes me feel actually very young to put the elbows on the table again and try to understand another reality. Of course, I won’t stop my professional life, I’ll continue acting, directing, but this is a new thing.’

    Banderas joins an impressive fashion alumni at the famous college including Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and John Galliano.

    Perhaps he got some style tips on the set of The Mask of Zorro? We predict an array of fierce eye masks for his first collection.
