Amanda Bynes Enrolls at Fashion College, Wears Twerk Team Hat

by at .

The newly-free Amanda Bynes is moving on with her life by enrolling at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Irvine, Calif., reports say.

A week after being released from a Malibu facility where she was being treated for mental illness, she's already making plans for the next phase.

She's also been spotted rocking a "Twerk Team" hat. So there's that.

Bynes' gear could possibly be a peace offering to a fellow former child star. Before being hospitalized, she'd frequently call Miley Cyrus "ugly" on Twitter.

Since then, Miley Cyrus Twerking has become a global sensation.

As for Amanda Bynes, her attorney said upon her release from rehab that "she's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."

Looks like she's back to pursuing that dream head on.

The actress has enrolled in the famed fashion college outside the Hollywood spotlight so she can avoid the paparazzi during her ongoing recovery.

The Fashion Institute’s Orange County campus, about 85 miles from their Ventura County residence, is not nearly as high-profile as the L.A. campus.

"Orange County is quieter, not in the public eye as much," the source said, confirming that she'll commute under the watchful eye of her mom and dad.

She was released from rehab last week after months of treatment for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, which followed a year-plus of erratic behavior.

We wish her only the best in her ongoing recovery.
