If you haven’t heard the buzz around town, world famous figure skater and fashion maven, Johnny Weir, has opened up his closet to us here at Linda’s Stuff. We are so honored and excited that Johnny has decided to sell some of his fabulous fashion items with us! What makes it even better? He is donating a portion of the proceeds to his favorite charity, The Trevor Project.
For those of you who do not know Johnny, he grew up in Coatesville, PA (which is not too far from our Linda’s Stuff home). He began his figure skating training at age 12 and hasn’t looked back since. He continued on to compete in many World Competitions, as well as on the US Olympic team. Besides being an incredible athlete, Weir is also a fashion inspiration. He is known for pushing the boundaries and taking risks both in his fashion and on the ice. This is truly a trait to be admired!
