This month's issue of Nylon magazine features Jeremy Scott, a Kansas City native who is ten years deep in the fashion industry. He left KC to attend the fancy-shmancy Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, then spent time in Paris. Now he's got an ongoing collaboration with adidas called Jeremy Scott ObyO, which is how his gold, high-top sneakers with wings came into the world.

Scott's also afflicted with a deadly case of name-drop-itis. He tells Nylon, "I thought about all my friends when I was designing -- M.I.A., Santi, Kanye -- what do they like to wear? Clothes that are comfortable but flashy -- Agyness has already asked for everything!"
These days, Scott lives in Los Angeles. They can have him.
