Katy Perry performed at the arena on Oct 11th and in keeping with their tradition of making each gift different and personalized to fit the artist, Barclays Center wanted something custom and memorable that really would stick out for Katy. They wanted something the pop star would really love, and something that also represented Brooklyn. And we were commissioned to make a jacket (see here) inspired by Katy’s song “Swish Swish.”
One expects a VMAs host to be entertaining and even outrageous. With Katy Perry at the helm for this year’s show, home viewers as well as the famous in-house audience members had to expect wild (and many) wardrobe choices from the hostess. And Katy Perry did not disappoint with her haute couture array, as she surely paid homage to the medium the VMAs were built on and are broadcast from.
