Jeremy Scott signs with new talent agency
Jeremy Scott has signed with WME-IMG.
The head of Moschino will now be represented by the mega agency, which will look after both media opportunities and fashion ventures.
WME-IMG formed after William Morris Endeavor acquired International Management Group, in December 2013, meaning their roster of clients could be greatly increased thanks to the new area of expertise brought in by the sports and talent management company. WME will look after any TV, film or book deals, while IMG will take care of Jeremy’s fashion career.
The designer was previously looked after by CAA.
WME-IMG recently announced it will be putting on a new two day fashion event, MADE L.A., in June (16). Jeremy will be showing off Moschino’s latest offerings at the stylish soiree, presenting both the men's 2016 and resort 2017 collections. More than 30 pop-up shops will also feature, showcasing works by designers, creatives and artists.
Since joining Moschino in 2013, Jeremy has infused the brand with his own sense of fun and colour. Previous collections include Barbie, Looney Tunes and SpongeBob SquarePants inspired lines. His Spring/ Summer 16 line focused on cartoon sisters The Powerpuff Girls.
"When I was working on the collection I loved the girls and thought it would be a cute element to have them there,” Jeremy previously told WWD.
“I was actually floored that so many people were excited to see what I had done with them. I was just doing something that was fun and personal because I liked them and they’re cute. It was kind of like my own little world.”
He’s also the go to designer for quirky pop stars like Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.
