Johnny Weir’s Little Black Dress Collection

Fashion / April 22, 2011

Whenever I hear that a figure skater is designing a clothing collection, I get visions of bedazzled, jeweled, glittered, feathered, and ruffled apparel fit for a Dancing with the Stars contestant.

And when I hear that national figure skating champion Johnny Weir, who loves his glitter and sequins almost as much as this guy does, is making a collection, I can’t help but wonder if he’ll have the ability to pull off a collection that doesn’t give me visions of Las Vegas showgirls.

A collection from the super creative Johnny Weir has an opportunity to be really good, or the alternative, so over-the-top and costume-like that his collection instantly becomes the go-to for drag queens and Cher.

Johnny Weir’s Little Black Dress collection will launch exclusively for on April 30th.  The collection will range from $198to $298 and will incorporate ostrich feathers, netting and sequin accents into the design.

For a sneak peek, check out the promising sketch Weir made for one of the dresses in his Little Black Dress collection (above).
