It wasn't very surprising when actor Antonio Banderas announced his decision to join a fashion school – Central Saint Martins, in London – to be exact, earlier this year. After all, plenty of actors venture into fashion design (think Kanye West, Sarah Jessica Parker or Eva Longoria).

He told People about his inspiration behind his plan to return to school. "I've been working with perfumes for 19 years and that's a universe that is very close to fashion," said Antonio. "A couple of years ago I had this idea to put a company together, and base it around design. I wanted to know the whole thing, entire thing."

He has also started making his own shirts, which he found quite difficult to sew. "It's just difficult," he said. "We are learning patterns, sketching, researching, everything. It's very artistic in a way."
