Already a catwalk pro and an up-and-coming actress, Cara Delevingne is adding yet another role to her long list of talents: clothing designer. The British model is designing a capsule collection for DKNY, it was announced Tuesday.

Delevingne, who already serves as the brand's face, is collaborating with the New York-based fashion house on a 15-piece range, which will include leather bombers, tank tops, and a parka. The Cara Delevingne for DKNY collection, with most pieces being unisex, will hit stores in November.

"I can't believe that some random, rough ideas have finally turned into my own collection … designs with my own name on them and in collaboration with the iconic DKNY brand," she told WWD. "It is so wild to realize that it has been an entire year since we began planning this project together … goes to show that time does fly when you're having fun."

The 21-year-old, who has over 5.5 million followers on Instagram, also took to the photo-sharing app to announce that she's looking to cast a few additional models to join her in her upcoming collection's campaign. Think you've got what it takes? Upload your photo to Instagram with the hashtags #CaraD4DKNY and #CaraWantsYou from now until June 16. Good luck.
