This is the first glimpse of Johnny Weir’s collection of LBDs for eDressMe.com. The dresses will be available this month and, judging by the sketch, look like… something a figure skater would wear. I’d say it’s too early to call (sidenote: I think Johnny Weir is completely awesome) but I’m interested to see how they actually turn out.
Also: ostrich feathers! The dresses cap around $300 and materials include “antique matte satin, silk, crepe stretch jersey, tulle and silk taffeta.” Expect the frocks to be loaded down in accents like sequins and ostrich feathers. Says Weir:
“The level of design is complemented by my understanding of a woman’s body, and my knack to refine the classic Little Black Dress with fanciful embellishments like feathers and sparkles.”
So. Are you looking forward to Weir’s collection? Or is this just another example of a celebrity with little to no design background dipping his toes in the fashion game?
