Miley Cyrus caused quite the fashion stir on Monday, and this time it wasn’t about what she was wearing (or not wearing, which seems to be the case these days). The newly-engaged pop star surprised the staff at men’s trade show Project New York by showing up to view the collections just like any fashion buyer, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
Miley arrived with friend Natalie Levy, cofounder of fashion line Grey Ant, and Maxwell Osborne, cofounder of Public School. But why exactly was she sifting through the racks at a men’s trade show? Could it be that Miley wants back in the high fashion game after her collaborative line with Max Azria for Walmart?
Well, not exactly. It looks like the 19-year-old was just helping out her fiance. Sources told WWD that while Miley attended the official after party at the Soho Grand Hotel, she took the opportunity to network, telling industry insiders that Hemsworth has plans to start a men’s clothing line. So we suspect her fashion-savvy entourage at Project was there to help her navigate the business side of the industry.
If this is true, it’s not a bad idea for Miley to pick the brains of the fashion set — it takes a lot for a brand to make it. But if the sudden peak in sales of Katie Holmes’ clothing line just after her divorce scandal is any indication of industry climate, it seems like Miley is already well-equipped with enough of her own controversies to draw attention to any line she backs for her future husband.
Do you think Liam and Miley are ready to launch a men’s fashion brand?
