The Antonio Banderas Collection may be headed to a department store near you soon…
The 54-year-old Spanish actor has announced that he’s moving to London to study at the prestigious design school Central Saint Martins, whose alumni include fashion all-stars like Stella McCartney, Zac Posen and Alexander McQueen.
Banderas revealed his new plans on the British talk show ITV’s Loose Women, explaining, “It’s something that has been on my mind for a long time and probably one of the best schools in the world is here, Saint Martins University, and so I am going to start studying with them.”
He noted that it may “take a while,” but added, “I need knowledge to take steps in that territory in the future. It makes me feel actually very young to put the elbows on the table again and try to understand another reality.”
Even though his time will be preoccupied with his studies, he’ll still make time for acting. “Of course I won’t stop my professional life, I’ll continue acting, directing, but this is a new thing,” says Banderas.
