Billy Porter has teased the possibility of launching his very own fashion line.

The Pose star is known for his statement looks on the red carpet, having made a splash in a tuxedo dress at the 2019 Oscars and turned heads in a crystal-encrusted blue outfit with matching hat for the 2020 Grammy Awards.

However, Porter has now revealed that he's currently working on incorporating his extravagant style into a new fashion collection.

"I'm working on figuring out what a fashion line would look like," he told People magazine. "I'm not sure if it will be clothing or accessories. I'm not sure, but it's on my brain."

Despite still being undecided on a foray into design, Porter emphasised that whatever he ends up doing will be focused on inspiring confidence amongst his fans.

"It's not just about what I'm wearing," the 50-year-old shared. "It's about how I feel. About how other people feel."

The actor has a busy year ahead of him, after landing roles as the genderless Fairy Godmother in Camila Cabello's musical live-action fairy tale movie Cinderella, and as the voice of the man-eating Venus flytrap Audrey II in the Little Shop of Horrors remake.

However, Porter is still focused on the fashion event of the year, the 2020 Met Gala, and revealed he's already working on his show-stopping ensemble.

"I'm going. I don't know who or how, but I'm going. We've landed on a designer, but that's all I know right now," he teased.
