Happy birthday, Jeremy Scott! Do you know what fashion insiders say about him? “He is the Andy Warhol of Fashion!” “He is the last fashion rebel!” Karl Lagerfeld, as well, said: “He’s the only designer who could design Chanel after I left”.

43 years old, from Kansas City, Missouri, he was very young when he moved to Paris with the dream of working in a big fashion house, but he ended up sleeping in the subway! No one can escape from his destiny. Finding the fashion system’s door closed, Jeremy decided to found his own brand. In 1997 he organized its first fashion show in a bar! The clothes were made from recycled materials and hospital gowns, but the collection was so ingenious that Colette decided to exhibit it in its shop windows.
Two seasons later the boom came. Björk felt in love with Jeremy’s total white collection and asked him to design all the dresses of her tour.
Since then, it was an escalation of successes. Jeremy now dresses all the singers you have in your favourite Spotify playlist, from Katy Perry to Madonna through Nicki Minaj to Lady Gaga. With Adidas, he designed some of the most iconic sneakers of our time and since 2013 he is the creative director of Moschino.
