Emma Watson is set to branch out from her Hollywood career — by launching her own ethical fashion label, according to reports.
The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince star is close to securing a deal with Fairtrade company People Tree to create a teenage clothing line, which she hopes to launch later this year.
Emma — who was recently unveiled as the face of British fashion house Burbery — has previously said she is not a fan of celebrities cashing in on their names.
But a source close to the young star told Britain’s Daily Mail, “She’s a big supporter of ethical concepts so liked the idea of this.
“There’s also a lot of interest from other influential brands since her success as the face of Burberry.
“Acting is always going to take priority, but she’s keen to branch out.”
A spokesperson for the actress said, “Emma supports many Fairtrade organisations but has no formal relationship with any company.”
