Zayn Malik Has Top Dance Hit, But Has Plans To Sell Shoes And Produce TV Show

Have you noticed that Zayn Malik is a little more stylish lately? Although it appears that he is spending more time hanging out with Gigi Hadid on a tropical vacation, Zayn Malik is working hard on his career — and it is not necessarily music. Regardless, some trajectories about Zayn Malik’s future are completely false.

At the end of August, Zayn Malik has raced to the top of the dance music charts in America, and Billboard writes that remixes of “Like I Would” by artists like The White Panda, Troyboi, and Oliver Nelson boosted his popularity.

Nevertheless, Zayn Malik has been posting pictures of himself without his usual punk garb, and instead has been wearing fancy threads. Is there a new stylist in Zayn Malik’s life or has Gigi Hadid’s fashion career finally rubbed off on him?

The reason for this fashion upgrade could be due to Zayn Malik expanding on the idea of having his own line of apparel. Despite this, in addition to his personal fashion line on his website, Zayn Malik has been teaming up with a fashion designer, according to TIME.

To give fans a preview, Zayn Malik posted a photo of himself wearing Giuseppe Zanotti, and tagged the fashion designer in a post on Twitter. Regardless of the fact that Zayn Malik’s girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, is a model, Zayn will be doing more than photo shoots with Giuseppe Zanotti.

Instead, Zayn Malik will be selling shoes with Giuseppe Zanotti, and the footwear will be available starting in 2017. About the new business venture, GQ quotes Zayn Malik stating the following.

“Style is not being afraid to be bold about some things, or to say what it is you have to say. I feel like Giuseppe does that with his collection — and I try to do that with my music. So it kind of works.”

There is a chance that Zayn Malik fans will get to start seeing some of the new Giuseppe Zanotti shoes during Fashion Week events coming up in September and October. Interestingly, Zayn Malik will also be playing a concert date in the fashion hotspot of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on October 7, according to Al-Arabiya.

This means that Zayn Malik’s timing for the Dubai concert may or may not be coincidentally placed at the end of the Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week events held around the world between September and early October.

No doubt, Gigi Hadid will be working throughout Fashion Week in Paris, London, Milan, or New York City, and teaming up with Giuseppe Zanotti may mean that Zayn Malik might be making an appearance on a runway as well.

Regardless, Zayn Malik will not be spending all of his time on business outside of the music industry in the next year. Although Zayn Malik recently talked about how he was working on a second album, he is also rumored to be part of a TV show.

According to Telegraph, Zayn Malik will be the executive producer for a television show about life in a boy band. The series is said to be a lot like the successful HBO series, Entourage.

For a moment, Zayn Malik was also rumored to be working on a biography, according to Mirror, but this is pure satire and simply a joke by Polly Hudson.

While Zayn Malik’s career appears to be going a million places at once, he is showing that he is not too busy to remind his fans that they are in his heart. Lately, MTV U.K. reports that Zayn Malik has been showing fans how much he cares by sending them thank you gifts.

As for future Zayn Malik celebrity sightings, Bustle reports that they predict there is no chance that Zayn will be at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on August 28.
