Johnny Weir is fashion forward: 'Project Runway,' call me
He takes it to the ice with his costumes and if you watch his reality show, " Be Good Johnny Weir" on the Sundance Channel, you'd know that his style extends itself to the every day, as well.
"You could totally express who you are," Weir tells Zap2it. "And the way you think and the mood you're in by what you put on your back. I love that."
For Weir, the transition from figure skating to fashion is an obvious one.
"I feel like skating is an art form and fashion is an art form," he says. "Naturally, so many skaters are into fashion and we wear costumes and glitter and makeup and hair. Everything is always done. It's natural to be involved in some way in the fashion world and I just grew to love it as a collector."
