You heard it here, folks! Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir has been seen in flamboyant skating get-ups and Balenciaga handbags, so it should come as no surprise that he hopes to work in the fashion industry.

Johnny is smart enough to say that figure skating isn’t something the body can endure forever and he hopes to attend FIT and “learn the basics of fashion from the ground up.” The thing is with his personality and appeal, it probably won’t be long before a company approaches Johnny about licensing deals. We can only hope he sticks to his FIT plans and learns the trade in order to have a successful and long career in fashion.
