Angeleno Jeremy Scott presented a collection at New York Fashion Week yesterday that he said was inspired by The Arab Spring. The demonstrations, protests and citizen uprisings that led to rulers being forced from power in countries like Egypt and Tunisia were rendered on the runway in the form of leopard-print veils, draped silk scarves, and dresses spangled with AK-47 paillettes.
It was in turns sporty and glamorous, with lots of blacks, golds and animal prints. And in regards to the subject matter, as our sister site said, Scott is "definitely not worried about offending people." Click over for a full photogallery from the runway.
