    Lysacek Ventures into Fashion

    Looks like that Evan has found his place somewhere else other than coming back competing.

    For some reason, I think he could succeed especially there is Vera Wang beside him.

    Since he has everything a competitor skater would want, he's checking out what's life got to offer. It's tough for young men to stay close to show biz. I don't think he wants to continue performing either. He's not a choreographer and can he start at the bottom and teach/coach? Good for him that he is searching.

    Will he meet the girl of his dreams and raise a family just on 10 years of SOI?

    I saw a tweet from him on that and I was afraid to look ...

    But is the woman on his right wearing the dress he designed? If so, I'm impressed. I always did like Evan's costumes. (I know he didn't design them but he still had to approve and I suppose looking back on it he did give a sense of having taste. )

    Do you mean the woman on his left? The one on his right is fashion designer Vera Wang, who has been designing his costumes lately. She was a skater and is famous for her wedding gowns. They have been pals and I'm sure she's a big factor in his foray into fashion designing.

    Even's tweets have been about hobnobing and name dropping. Wang is not his only celebrity pal or new BFF.

    The amateur skating World is missing him. The king of figure skating would have added alot to this dissapointing season of mens singles so far.

    He has been dropping names of some of the celebrities he's met, in his tweets; but he also tweets about a lot of charity events and good causes, like 'habitat for humanity'.

    Seriously!


    Honestly, looks like Evan is well liked a lot more elsewhere. Wish him a good luck in fashion design and everything! I like the dress he designed.

    There must be a lot of girls looking up to him. The question is which one he's going to choose?

    He is certainly a better skater than designer, this dress is too heavy and busy. But since it was for charity, it is good I guess.

    The dress does look a little heavy but, to me, it still looks very good and beautiful. Some real fashion designer's products are worse. So I think it's very impressive for Lysacek's debute.

    Isn't Johnny Weir interested in fashion design also? Maybe the rivalry will continue. They could put on a joint show: dueling designers.

    I respect Evan as a skater and competitor, and I'm not trying to ridicule him here when I say this. I wonder if his designing venture will include lots of black.

    Well, I am not really missing him. He did not do much for me. One of those skaters I will probably never feel the need to dig out a youtube link and watch again, while for many I do. Sorry.
    And that is not that I don't respect him as an athlete. Because he was the ultimate competitor.
    But good for him if he moves forward in his life. 25y of age is the right time to do it, if he wants something to achieve outside of skating.

    I'm sure that I'll prefer Lysacek's taste wayyyyyy more than Weir's.

    Did Lysacek actually sew this dress or just designed it? Weir said he didn't know how to sew.
