Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Brad Smith’s interests are not relegated solely to the football field. It turns out Smith is actually a burgeoning player in the world of fashion.
After completing a Fashion Week internship at Men’s Health, reporting to fashion director Brian Boye, Smith was inspired to help emerging designers. The result was his Design for Brad Smith competition, held in partnership with the magazine. The winner, Kassie Haji, was announced on Friday at Windsor Custom at The Ainsworth in New York.
“To be able to highlight people’s creativity and their artistry, especially in the realm of fashion and design, that’s something that appeals to me,” said Smith.
In our Media Beat interview, Smith tells us about being a fashion intern, describes Haji’s winning design and reveals his future fashion projects.
