Missouri-bred Jeremy Scott has worked his way up the fashion ladder to helm two super-brands: his eponymous label and Italian giant Moschino, which recruited him as creative director in 2013. Still, his road to success was rocky, as we learn in Vlad Yudin's new doc, Jeremy Scott: The People's Designer. He was teased at school for his clothes, rejected by FIT, and left homeless in Paris when he couldn't land an internship. But with his "nothing to lose" confidence, Scott bounced back -- and continues to.
Critics bashed his debut collection at Moschino last year, but acolytes Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry applauded his wild pop art aesthetic. Another of his advocates: his boisterous stylist, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, who gets her Grace Coddington moment in the film. Scott may rule the runway, but she steals the show.
Jeremy Scott: The People's Designer is in select theaters Sept. 18. Watch the trailer below:
