British actor Robert Pattinson is eyeing a move into the fashion industry after discovering a passion for designing women's clothing. The Twilight star, who is the face of fashion house Christian Dior, has started working on a book of sketches and hopes to one day take his new hobby to a professional level. He tells Harper's Bazaar Arabia, "I want to get more involved with the industry, I really like it. I like drawing couture dresses. I started doing it and was like 'What is happening?' Suddenly I had a sketchbook full of dresses. "I like the artistry of it, it's like costume design. The speed of it means you can just move so much quicker. I like designing clothes."
