The madness that is Trevor Andrew‘s life aka GucciGhost just keeps growing more amazing. As the pride of Canada – the CBC – reported…

 

“A former Nova Scotia Olympic snowboarder from Falmouth, N.S., is behind a fashion lined feted by Gucci Wednesday at the label’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

It’s a celebration Trevor Andrew might not have found himself at the centre of — had it not been for a fluky Halloween costume. 

In 2012, Andrew dressed up as a Gucci ghost for Halloween.

He cut two holes in a Gucci bed sheet, then hit the streets of New York. Andrew said the costume was a big hit in a big city where it would have been easy for him to be overlooked.

“Everybody was like ‘Gucci ghost’, and stopping their cars and like, ‘Let me take a photo with you’.” “

 

The history of how Trevor created GucciGhost is looked into and then they get back to the party:

“Now, during New York Fashion Week, Gucci is throwing a party for the collection Andrew inspired at its flagship store on Fifth Avenue, the facade of which is already awash in his art.

“It’s pretty surreal,” Andrew said Wednesday. “I feel like I’m planning for my wedding or something tonight.”

There’s lots to celebrate.”

 

 

The reason the CBC is so fascinated with Trevor is because he is a small fish from the approx. 1200 person village of Falmouth, Nova Scotia. A long way from the Big Apple.

“Fashion week in the Big Apple is a far cry from the village where Andrew grew up. 

Andrew left Falmouth at 15 to become a competitive snowboarder. He competed in the men’s halfpipe at the 1998 and 2002 Olympic Winter Games. 

Then he travelled the world, before settling in Brooklyn to pursue his art career. He’s a musician with the band Trouble Andrew and directs music videos.

Andrew started painting clothes when on a trip to Texas to shoot a music video with Zoe Kravitz and Miley Cyrus.

“It’s such an honour to be in this position,” he said.”
