Michelle Rodriguez has found a new career path - the former Lost star is working on a clothing line inspired by world cultures.
The actress plans to travel to a dozen countries, including China and Brazil, to "study people, social classes, history, culture" before finishing her designs.
"The company that I want to start should be ethnic," said Michelle, who grew up in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. "I think there is a (growing) awareness and people are opening their eyes about the world and the environment."
She said she hoped her travels would also help her understand the potential market for her line, to be named Ishkadada.
Meanwhile, Michelle plans to continue her acting career and is in talks with producers about appearing in a possible movie.
The actress, who appeared in one season of the Lost, was jailed briefly last year for violating probation terms after getting arrested for drink driving in Hawaii.
