If you're not one of 5.7 million people who follow Joshua Ostrovsky — also known as @TheFatJewish — on Instagram, you probably at least know someone who has tagged you in his comments. The polarizing celebrity — who has been repeatedly accused of joke-stealing — has recently turned to off-line pursuits, signing with talent agency CAA and joining One Management as a male model. He's a Seamless spokesperson and, along with White Girl Problems' Babe Walker, the co-founder of White Girl Rosé (a bottle of which he brought to the CFDA awards red carpet). And now he's coming for Fashion Week.
On September 16, Ostrovsky will debut the Dad Fashion Show, a presentation he describes as "an eclectic collection of apparel" celebrating "the moods and personalities of dads of all ages," at MADE studios at the Standard Hotel. MADE, mind you, has put on shows for everyone from Proenza Schouler to Alexander Wang.
Says Jenné Lombardo, co-founder of MADE Fashion Week: "Josh has always been a visionary and that is something we welcome into the MADE family. I think the establishment would agree: his keen eye, ability to identify trends and the high probability that he has fathered a yet-to-be-identified child has always kept him at the forefront of culture."
Tell your dad to book his flights to New York City for Fashion Week. There's finally room for him (and his bod).
