Good lord, will this trend ever end? Apparenly, Sienna Miller is turning into a fashion designer. Shocker. According to today’s WWD, the actress (who at times looks great and others scares me) is teaming up with her designer-sister Savannah Miller
to create an 80-piece ready-to-wear line, called Twenty8Twelve by
s.miller, which is set to launch for fall 2007.

"I’ve always loved fashion, and
Savannah got a First in design at Saint Martins," said Sienna, who was
with her sister to unveil the line at London’s Berkeley Hotel
Wednesday. "We hadn’t thought to pursue it together, but this just
happened organically. And setting up a label with your sister is a lot
of fun — there haven’t been any fights yet."

The pair’s first
collection includes denim, knitwear, tailored jackets, dresses and
outerwear. "We wanted to
create that London world that feels inaccessible," said Sienna.

But the actress made clear that it’s not
just another celebrity fashion line. "I’m not about to become a brand —
I won’t be releasing an album, perfume and knickers next year," said

Both sisters said they were equally involved in the design process for the collection, which is backed by Carlos Ortega,
the Spanish entrepreneur who owns companies such as Pepe Jeans. Sienna
currently appears in the Pepe Jeans campaigns and is contracted with
the company through spring 2008.

that doesn’t mean Sienna is above making some professional mistakes.
"Some trousers that were my idea came back as a prototype and were
absolutely disgusting. Everyone was worried I’d want them, but I just
said, ‘Scrap them,’" she said with a laugh. (Wow, that is most shocking of all).
