Amanda Bynes has officially begun classes as the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, following her plans to get back into the fashion business.

Amanda Bynes Attends Fashion Institute

"She was very nice, friendly and chatting with her classmates," the source told E! News, adding that Bynes was "originally going to be a fashion design major but has now decided to pursue merchandise product development. She is enrolled part-time for the winter quarter."

Bynes, who enrolled at FIDM earlier this month, toured the school’s Orange County campus back in December.

Bynes' Post-Inpatient Plans

Bynes was released from her inpatient treatment program in December after spending five months in the facility. At the time, her lawyers said that the 27-year-old was contemplating enrolling in a fashion design program.

"She’s now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design," her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, told People. "She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."

Although the former child star is no longer in an inpatient facility, she will continue her treatment as an outpatient. Part of Bynes’ release arrangements includes the stipulation that she remains in the car of her parents, Lynn Bynes and Rick Bynes.
