As time goes by, more details about Amy Winehouse’s reported stint as a fashion designer at coming to the fore. has hinted that the singer might be teaming up with British label Fred Perry.

SHE has stepped out of the line of paparazzi fire recently but after the annus horribilis that was 2008, word has it that Amy Winehouse is preparing to make a spectacular public comeback – as a fashion designer.

According to the tabloids, the Rehab singer let slip during a festive holiday that she is currently in negotiations with iconic British label Fred Perry and has already started sketching out a few of her ideas.

“She was almost childishly excited and couldn’t stop talking about it,” a source told The Sun.

She may have spent 2008 beset by personal problems but for some, a Winehouse foray into fashion could seem overdue; not only did her distinctive look dictate the styling of Karl Lagerfeld‘s Paris-LondresMetiers d’Art collection for Chanel in 2007 but Roberto Cavalli has previously declared her “a fashion icon because she is unique”, and London-based footwear designer Jonathan Kelsey created a stiletto, the Amy, in her honour – which she was promptly photographed wearing.
