YOUNG ADAM star Tilda Swinton is hoping to make an impact on the fashion world, by making school uniforms stylish again.

The British actress, 44, thoroughly enjoyed turning her uniform into a more fashionable ensemble when she was at school, and she's eager to start it again.

She says, "At school, there was a fantastic amount of energy expended on customising our uniforms, which were just a navy-blue pleated skirt, a white shirt and a blue and white tie.

"It was kind of a St Trinian's look. I'm thinking of reviving it for Spring 2006."
