A Fashion Education: Jeremy Scott

Jeremy ScottAmerican designer Jeremy Scott's eponymous label began in 1997 and is infamous for conceptual pieces inspired by pop culture icons, including Mickey Mouse, fast food and The Flintstones. He dressed Britney Spears as a stewardess in her Toxis video and Karl Lagerfeld once said in an interview with "Le Monde" that Scott was the only designer who could take over after he leaves Chanel. Other fans include Madonna, Agnyess Deyn, Beth Ditto, Rhianna, Cory Kenndy, Lady Gaga - a veritable who's who of style icons!Jeremy ScottHis Fall 2010 RTW collection was titled "Hanger Appeal," a sign that he'll continue to bring more and more wearable pieces to the plate? I could definitely see items the average woman would wear scattered throughout the collection, blended into with outrageous pieces that stayed true to his nature. With the economy in the toilet and his Fred Flintstone dresses on clearence at Opening Ceremony, it's probably a smart move to design a collection with hanger appeal ;)

Jeremy Scott's designs are so unique. The way he infuses pop culture and fashion is beyond words. I love his Snickers and Flinstone pieces; they are definitely one of a kind.
