“I’m always the figure in someone else’s dream,” the actor John Malkovich recently told Squarespace, “I would really rather sometimes make my own figures and make my own dreams.”
In collaboration with the website-building platform, Malkovich has brought a childhood fantasy to life in the form of a beautiful clothing brand. Wherever he went, and no matter what role he played, the actor always kept one foot in the fashion industry, and his new, one-of-kind collection draws inspiration from a lifetime of travel and exploration.
Malkovich’s incredible journey from costume design to acting and back to fashion is a part of a new documentary on Make Your Next Move, a platform designed by Squarespace to inspire and motivate artists of all kinds to take a risk and build something new.
