Besides helping restaurateur husband Farhan Azmi set up his boutique hotel in Goa, Ayesha Takia is now getting ready to launch her own designer label. Says a source close to Ayesha, "She has been working on a fashion line for a while now. She was interested in designing even before she entered films but it took a backseat once she started doing films." The source adds that the designing bug never left her. "Ayesha would take a keen interest in the outfits she'd wear in her films and give her own inputs to the designers."
Revealing more about the actress' designer plans, the source continues, "The actress will design her own clothes rather than enter into a partnership with any fashion house. It's entirely her baby and Farhan is not helping to launch it except in giving her moral support and encouragement."
The source adds, "Her designer line won't be called Ayesha but something more exotic. It will be an exclusive designer range that will feature high-end and even affordable stuff. The line will be simple and classic, stylish with elegant lines." Ayesha's husband Farhan Azmi confirms, "It's true that Ayesha is working on her own designer line but it's still in the pipeline. It might take another year or so. It's too early to talk about it right now."
