Amanda Bynes, the troubled actress who got her start on Nickelodeon, has re-enrolled in fashion and design school and is said to be doing well. Once again taking classes at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, an attorney for her parents confirms that Amanda Bynes has made great strides in recent months. The star of The Amanda Show has a past riddled with alcohol, substance abuse, and mental illness problems.
“We are all so proud of her, and can’t wait to see her amazing designs on the runway someday,” Tamar Arminak tells People magazine.

It was back in August of 2014 when Amanda Bynes stopped attending classes at the institute. She was arrested for DUI just a month later.
Earlier this summer, it was becoming increasingly clear that Amanda Bynes was putting the pieces of her rather turbulent life back together again.
“Amanda is doing great. She appreciates all of the love and support she receives from family, friends and fans,” her attorney David Esquibias said in June.
By August, Amanda Bynes was back on social media and was seen accompanying designer Michael Costello to a gala in L.A.

While it’s wonderful to see Amanda Bynes having made such accomplished strides in recent months, she remains under the conservatorship of her parents. Hopefully in time, she will have that now-necessary burden lifted, too.
