Amanda Bynes celebrated her fashion debut with her parents on Friday night (21.03.14).

The actress, who went through a public breakdown last year, looked happy and healthy as she attended a special event for new students held by the prestigious Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.

The 'She's The Man' star has just completed her first quarter at the university and seemed back to her bubbly self as she shared a series of photos from the 2014 FIDM Debut on Twitter, including a family snap with her proud parents Rick and Lynn, who have supported her throughout her ordeal.

She later posted a picture from the fashion school's runway presentation, writing: ''Some of the many beautiful designs from last night!''

This marks one of the first times Amanda has used the social networking site since leaving rehab and enrolling at FIDM in December 2013 in a bid to carve out a career as a fashion designer.

The 27-year-old star - whose hair is back to a natural-looking blonde - first updated her fans about her whereabouts on March 1.

She announced: ''Hi everyone! I'm busy studying at @FIDM but I want to say I love you to my fans! Xoxo''.

Amanda completed three months of psychiatric treatment for both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder last winter following several concerning outbursts.

She is said to be ''horrified'' by the erratic comments she made on Twitter last year, and has deleted her past activity so she can start afresh.

In February, she escaped jail and a fine in her driving under the influence (DUI) case, but was placed on three years' probation and ordered to attend three months of alcohol education classes.
