Philipp Plein presents Ready To Wear Fall/Winter 2017 now in New York Fashion Week, where he used to presents all his brand at Europe. But now Plein wants to build brand recognition in the States.
The venue’s beautiful steps were lined with ladies in Statue of Liberty costumes; Elvis and the Naked Cowboy (who wore Plein-branded briefs) took a break from Times Square to play the showgoers in; chain fences and neon signs, including one that read “who the f**k is Philipp Plein,” lined the walls; and ushers in sequined taxi outfits helped direct people to their seats. Legendary NYC rapper Nas performed before the show, and megastars like Madonna, Kylie Jenner, Paris Hilton and Fat Joe made up much of the front row.
Perhaps the biggest stunt of all, though, was the show’s casting. In addition to dozens of Victoria’s Secret regulars and top Insta-kids like Anwar Hadid, Cami Morrone and Sofia Richie, he assembled a motley crew of models that included Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, fashion photographer Sebastian Faena, New England Patriot Danny Amandola and a trio of rappers: Young Thug, Fetty Wap and Desiigner. However, the most egregious play for attention was the model who opened the show: Jeremy Meeks, more commonly known as the “hot felon” whose dreamy mugshot went viral in 2016, made his runway debut on Monday night, marking the very first fashion week event he’s ever participated in.
Alyssa Vingan Klein from fashionista.com get around at backstage with Jeremy Meeks, and you will wonder, who the heck is Jeremy Meeks?, in 2015 Jeremy went viral because somebody put a picture police about him, where he looks dashing including his teardrop tatts over his check bone.
So he’s starting to do modeling, he’s represented by White Cross Management, and he was so excited to walk for Philipp who actually get to him because Jeremy’s friends, “this whole experience has been amazing.” So recomended to read that article.
