    Moving from the Arizona desert to the bright lights of New York has given the Knicks' Amare Stoudemire a way to express himself as a true fashion (power) forward.

    The NBA standout is now in talks to launch a possible fashion line, reports the New York Post.

    In September, the all-star told thePost that he's long had a love of fashion so his jump into the world of haute couture isn't a shocking move.

    "I love fashion...I love watches. I love shoes. I make sure that every time I step out of the house, I'm feeling comfortable and fashion-forward. Depending on the occasion, I dress the part," he said in an interview with the paper's Page Six Magazine.

    According to reports, the line would be a part of designer Rachel Roy's contemporary label, Rachel Rachel Roy, for Macy's department stores. It would make its debut next fall and would more than likely be a women's line. The two met at Fashion Week earlier this year.

    Since signing a $100 million deal with the Knicks this past summer, the power forward has been a regular on New York's high-end fashion circuit. He attended Fashion Week's Fashion Night Out runway show as a guest of Vogue editor Anna Wintour and was also spotted at the Tommy Hilfiger show as well.
