She’s been out of the public eye for several years but Amanda Bynes is back in action and with a new brand to boot.
The troubled star, 32, has trademarked “Vintage By Amanda Bynes” for a variety of categories including clothing, jewelry and beauty products, according to documents obtained by The Blast. As an example of an item she intends to produce and sell, Bynes included an antique-looking gold key painted with the name of her new brand.
The now-sober actress also offered a peek at her upcoming collection in her cover story for Paper magazine’s annual “Break the Internet” issue, for which she posed in a 1920s-inspired, crystal-encrusted silver top she designed herself.
As Page Six reported in 2017, Bynes is on track to graduate from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, where she’s been enrolled since 2014, before the end of the year.
“Instructors love her. Love her,” Kathi Gilbert, the assistant dean of admissions and one of Bynes’ advisors, told Paper, adding that FIDM’s teachers “wished all of their students could be like her … She’s smart, she participates in class — she’s an amazing student.”
Since the star will remain under a conservatorship for the next two years, her father, Richard Bynes, will serve as a trustee for her new brand, according to The Blast.
