Harry Potter star Emma Watson has already made her mark on the fashion world, but she is now planning another venture with the Italian designers of Alberta Ferretti. The goal is to design organic clothing that is fashionable and eco-friendly, according to Fibre2Fashion.com.
She will now be associated with the Pure Threads fashion line, presumably in a move to attract more publicity to the garments. Watson's forays in the fashion world are already numerous - she was the model for Burberry's 2009 AW campaign and the S/S campaign in 2010.
Watson has lent her business savvy to fashion brand People Tree as well, as she is currently a creative consultant for the fair trade business.
Working with Alberta Ferretti may be a change of pace, as it is a much more high-end label than what Waston is used to, but she has said that she is looking forward to the opportunity, the news source reports.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has found that, in the United States, the highest number of fashion designers live in California and New York. They held 22,700 jobs in 2008. While 31 percent worked with apparel or piece good manufacturers, many were self-employed.
