Everyone at the MFW talks about him, Jeremy Scott! “He is the Andy Warhol of Fashion!” “He is the last fashion rebel!” “He’s the only designer who could design Chanel after I left,” Said Karl Lagerfeld.

42, 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! But 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 garments 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.
From there it is an escalation of successes. Jeremy now styles all the singers you have in your favorite Spotyfy 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 from 2013 he is the creative director of Moschino.
