Spotted: Amar'e Stoudemire with beautiful designer, Rachel Roy

Amar'e Stoudemire moved to New York, hit red carpets, became a designer's muse...and now is starting his own fashion brand. Whew! A difference a year out of Phoenix makes.

The two were spotted leaving the Harry Winston boutique yesterday in NYC.  The pair are reportedly working on a fashion collection together.

*This really speaks to the New York, big city argument!
Amar'e, who sat front row at many shows during Fashion Week this year, says he has been a clotheshorse for as long as he can remember.
“I was never a designer or anything like that, but as far as putting together what I was going to wear, I was a fashion rebel, always mixing it up,” said Stoudemire. “As long as I remember, I always did something with my clothes. I would slice up the bottom of my jeans so that they would look different. I would change the design of my shirt and add an extra layer. I would wear two different tennis shoes."
And now, his success in the sports arena allowed him to hook up with one of the hottest young designers in the world.  And Rachel Roy herself seems to really enjoy their work together.  She said working with Amar'e helped jog her own artistic fire and put her in a different mindset saying:
"What does Gisele wear when she goes to see her man [New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady] play? What would Kate Moss wear? Those images are the inspiration as we’re designing.”

So what will it all look like?  We haven't seen a preview yet but I'm sure it will be fab. The line will retail between $45-$250 when it hits Macy's racks in September.
