A$ap Rocky is not too cool to admit he is influenced by another artist. The Harlemite has been the it guy in urban fashion for for the past couple of years. One of the first people in the fashion world to extend the hand to Rocky was Jeremy Scott. Rocky spoke highly of Scott last week, stating the designer “changed my life.”
The quote was taken from the upcoming Jeremy Scott upcoming documentary titled “The People’s Designer.” The film tells the story of the thoughtful kid from Kansas who slept on the streets to make it to where he is now. The dramatic pull of the documentary is centered around Scott's first show as creative director of Moschino.
Very few designers have their ear to the streets like Jeremy Scott. The Kansas native has done a great job meshing fashion and music together. Outside of Kanye, he may be the best high-fashion designer and blending those world’s successfully.
I can’t wait to see this documentary when it drops!
