BANDERAS’ NEW CLOTHES: Having comfortably established himself as a film star, Antonio Banderas is turning his hand to fashion. This week, the Spanish actor posted an image on his Instagram account of him standing amid tailor’s mannequins, to chronicle what he called his “2nd week of studies at Central Saint Martins,” calling the experience “intense, exciting, serious and fun all at the same time.”
A spokeswoman for Central Saint Martins confirmed Thursday that Banderas is studying a short course in bespoke tailoring at the London art school, which runs over four weeks.
“[Banderas is] starting from scratch and learning the basics of bespoke tailoring,” the spokeswoman said, noting that Banderas had spoken to the college earlier this year about enrolling in a tailoring course. The spokeswoman declined to comment on whether Banderas is planning to launch his own line. A representative for Banderas could not be reached for comment Thursday.
