The actor and director will open Atelier Jolie in New York in November, she told Vogue magazine on Wednesday.

"I don't want to be a big fashion designer," the 48-year-old said. "I want to build a house for other people to become that."

With the new project, Jolie looks to provide a place where talent can work creatively and sustainably.

"I’ve met a lot of artisans over the years – very capable, talented people – and I'd like to see them grow," Jolie added.

The Oscar winner spent a long time looking for the right space for her fashion project, and as she walked around New York City with her daughter Zahara (18), something immediately caught her eye: a building covered with endless graffiti.

"Perhaps we can do something with all the art," the Maleficent star said.

The location at 7 Great Jones Street will now house her new creative endeavor.

The two-story building has an artistic past. Andy Warhol (1928-1987) bought it in 1970 and then rented it to his friend, fellow artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988).

New York fashionistas, get hyped.
