Stay True to Yourself and you can go Places

Like Rising Fashion Icon, Jeremy Scott

 

Picture a man on roller skates with Vulcan eyebrows, drag queens, club-goers and fashion connoisseurs all gathered at Jeremy Scott’s fashion show that was held in September, which resembled a hair-metal-meets-hillbilly reverie. Scott definitely isn’t afraid to step out of the ordinary, shown through his fashion designs at the show, starting with his set of promiscuous denim clothing line.  One model wore fringed cut-offs that were so tight Daisy Duke would be embarrassed.

After the denim parade, came the cowboy. A male model walked down the runway in green leather chaps and a jockstrap, and for a finale, what else would you expect? Scott just stormed the runway himself. Scott claims that he doesn’t like being the center of attention, but there are a few times where he rarely isn’t. Scott, now 36, came in the age of the “anti-fashion” era, which was roughly from 1997-2001. Scott ended up being one of the last rebels from this era standing.

Scott is the sole owner of his namesake label, and has paired with companies such as Adidas, Longchamp, and Swatch. Although Scott comes across as a punk and prankster, at age 14, he began studying French and took night courses. After all, Paris is the fashion capital of the world. In 1992, he moved to New York to study at Pratt Institute. Scott has been expressing himself regularly with his body so it seems as though the fashion industry was more of a calling for him, and needless to say, he has been successful at just that.
