several Fashion Weeks and beyond, we learn the larger
story of his struggle to gain acceptance and overcome
immense challenges to reach his goals. The film examines
the dynamics between Jeremy and his team and, for

observe Jeremy’s creative process. This project can
be defined as fashion documentary, but the film gives
viewers a look at Jeremy’s worldview beyond clothing.
His goals for the future, inspirations, fears and opinions
about culture are central to the experience of this film.
Rather than overly focus on Jeremy’s personal life, the
film concerns itself more with his artistic vision and his
perception of his increasingly prominent position in
