FASHION THERE ISN’T ANYTHING THAT WE CAN SAY ABOUT JEREMY SCOTT THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE WORDS “AMAZING,” “DETERMINED,” AND “TALENTED.” THE DESIGNS FOR HIS OWN LINE, AS WELL AS ITALIAN HOUSE MOSCHINO, HAVE CATAPULTED HIM TO STARDOM OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS.

out the scoop behind how the Dirty Hippie collaboration came to be and what we can expect from him in the future! Following are two of the many insightful questions answered. Q: You collaborated with Moschino, which debuted last season, and you will be doing it again this season, so what can we expect to see from this collection? Well, it’s been wonderful. They have been super supportive - not just on the
