Diddy Taking Sean John To Women

Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is in the process

of buying a financial stake in the designs of Zac Posen, who is labeled as one

of New York’s hottest fashion designers.

A partnership between the 24-year-old and Combs

is expected to push his Sean John clothing label into the mainstream.

"Urban" apparel is the fastest growing

sector of the $52 billion dollar men’s wear industry.

According to the Associated Press, the Zac Posen

deal would be Combs’ first outside investment, but would bring Combs into the

world of women’s high fashion.

Combs is planning on launching a Sean John women’s

line next year.

"I’m intrigued by the industry, and the

people have embraced me and my style and my heart for trying to do something

different," Combs said. "What I don’t know, I can learn. If I want

to be one of the best, I have to go all out. I’m not afraid."

Combs will also open a Sean John boutique this

summer on Fifth Avenue and will launch a Sean John fragrance in the near future.
