You may not know the name Josh Ostrovsky, but you certainly know his alter ego, @TheFatJewish, of Instagram fame. And he’s about to blow up in a whole new way when he puts on the Dad Fashion Show on September 16 as part of New York Fashion Week. The hilarious social media savant, who was recently signed by talent agency CAA and modelling agency One Management (yes, really) says we can expect “an eclectic collection of apparel [for] the moods and personalities of dads of all ages.”
Upping the legitimacy is the fact that Made studios (which has produced shows for heavy hitters like Alexander Wang) will be hosting the event at the always-hip Standard Hotel. It’s certainly an unexpected turn for everyone involved, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t totally intrigued!
Shop some of our favourite athletic wear, à la Mr. Ostrovsky.
