PARIS (Reuters) - British rocker Pete Doherty is following in the steps of model girlfriend Kate Moss and is close to sealing a deal to design clothes for trendy Manchester label Gio-Goi.
The deal, which sources close to the matter said could be announced next week, would come only days after Moss landed herself a deal to design a collection for Topshop, the British high street fashion chain.
Gio-Goi co-founder Anthony Donnelly, reached by Reuters by phone, remained tight-lipped.
He said the group would hold a news conference on Wednesday but he would not give any clues as to its agenda.
"It's going to be a beautiful week next week," he joked.
British newspaper the Daily Mirror, citing a fashion source, said on Wednesday that the 27-year-old Babyshambles frontman, who was recently discharged from rehab, would design and model a range of clothes for the label.
Gio-Goi, a cult 1990s fashion label, was a big hit in the electronic music scene.
The label was re-launched in 2005 and is again dressing members of the music industry such as Doherty, The Streets, Arctic Monkeys or the Paddingtons.
Gio-Goi has dressed a host of British rockers in the past including The Rolling Stones, Happy Mondays, Oasis, New Order, and Primal Scream.
I'd also just like to give a congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Hanson. Such a cute couple. :0)
