Zayn Malik 'wants to make move into fashion world'
Zayn Malik is reportedly keen to secure an endorsement deal with a huge fashion brand.
The 22-year-old singer walked away from One Direction in March and although music remains his priority, Zayn is also apparently eager to make waves in the world of fashion.
A source said: "Zayn has always been very creative and introverted.
"He tried out various looks and styles during his time in One Direction, which has led to interest from top fashion houses."
Zayn remains committed to making more music in the future, but he sees his interest in fashion as more than just a mere hobby.
The source told The Sun newspaper: "Music will always be his priority but fashion could be more than just a side project.
"The long-term aim could be to potentially earn a big-money endorsement deal with a huge fashion brand."
This comes shortly after it was speculated Zayn plans to try his hand at stage acting during the Old Vic's 24 Hour Plays series, which takes place in the autumn.
A source said: "Everyone expects Zayn to go a certain way now he has quit 1D but his people are already talking with organisers of the 24 Hour Plays to get him involved.
"They want him to make a cameo, which won't require much acting but will see him in a grown-up light among some great A-list company. They also want to maintain his profile in America."
