From exclusive behind-the-scenes looks to your first look at the runway, WGSN is on the ground covering all of New York Fashion Week.

Fresh from his AW16 show, in the heart of snow-covered NYC we caught up with the outlandish and always fun designer Jeremy Scott.

What was the inspiration behind this season’s collection?

JS: ‘Dolly on Molly. When I was thinking about the collection, what it is and how it looks, basically it is Dolly Parton inspired but Dolly on acid.

There’s been a huge buzz this NYFW about designers going seasonless and ditching the idea of autumn/spring specific collections. What you just sent down the runway seemed to be in line with this idea, with all the bright pinks, rhinestones and bright oranges, they are not your typical autumnal colours.

JS: ‘I just always believe in bright colours, I think there’s never a bad moment for colour honestly we could always use a little cheer especially when its cold and dreary outside.’wgsn_jeremy_scott_nyfw_aw16

How is your design process different from your own collection to when you’re designing for Moschino?

JS: ‘For me I just think of it as a subway train, the train goes through the same station but just on different tracks. I might be west 4th station, and they both go through me but end up with different results headed in different destinations’

Finally, how do you stay calm while having to create so many collections?

JS: ‘Easy, I just have my own sense of innate calmness’
