Sasha Velour Will Star In Opening Ceremony’s NYFW Show

From taking their runway to Disneyland to a Whoopi Goldberg appearance, Opening Ceremony is making Fashion Week a lot more fun. Now, for Spring 2019, drag superstar — and season nine RuPaul’s Drag Race winner — Sasha Velour will be taking over the runway.

Velour will be teaming up with the label to create a “live spectacle celebrating the art of drag,” as they showcase Opening Ceremony’s new collection. There will be surprise special guests (we can’t wait!) and performances during the Sunday, September 9, show. If the bright pink and yellow color combination in Velour’s Instagram video tells us anything, it’s going to be a very, very fun show.

This is Velour’s first high-fashion collaboration, though she’s stayed busy since winning RuPaul’s Drag Race with her drag show “Nightgowns” and an annual publication called Velour: The Drag Magazine that tells the story of drag artists through visual art, poetry and interviews.

The fabulous energy of Sasha Velour is just what New York Fashion Week needs.
