American Idol runner up Adam Lambert had a meteorical rise to success in the charts with his debut single. Although his fans had to wait a year for the release following his participation in the show it’s clear they were not disappointed.
With a background in acting, its no surprise that his performances have continued to woo thousands of fans around the world. And, judging by his live stage collaborations with Queen and Kiss, there is much to look forward to from this talented star, particularly as he navigates the hype in the build up to the release of his second album.
Jonny Cota heads up Skingraft, an accessory label whose headpieces and gloves have been donned by the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna.
A key source of inspiration for the designer is, oddly enough, the circus. Jonny started his career as a traveling circus performer where he began constructing costumes and ornate pieces of wearable art. This slowly developed into more wearable pieces once he founded his label in 2005.
What began as an experiment in performance-art-inspired fashion now produces full ready-to-wear collections for men and women along with ornate one-of-a-kind works for the runway and stage.
