I asked him to do a little write up on an idea he shared with me...enjoy!
New York’s Athletes Invade Fashion Week
New York’s Fashion Week but they now have some company. While New York has
always had its fashionable athletes; the always-suited New York Yankees of the 40’s
and 50’s, Walt “Clyde” Frazier and the New York “Sasson” Rangers, more and more
athletes are joining the wave.
The most obvious case may be former Vogue intern and New York Ranger Sean
Avery, who has never met a fashion designer he didn’t like since his days in Los
Angeles and even more so in New York but he has company.
The always-dapper Amar’e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks, as well as his
teammate, Carmelo Anthony have been in the tents so often this week, they are now
on a first name basis with some of the biggest in the industry including Richard Chai
and Simon Spurr.
