Media darling Johnny Weir to skate in Detroit fashion gala

Jun '10
Olympic figure skater and fashion-ICE-ta Johnny Weir will join Detroit's Alyssa Czisny at the Second Annual “Crème de la Crème”. Held at Macomb's Suburban Ice Arena on June 27-28, 2010, the event is the first “runway show on ice”. Presented by Royal Oak's “Le Salon Couture” the show will feature exclusive designer bridal fashions newly arrived from New York and Barcelona.

Johnny Weir is a skating and media star. He is a three time U.S. champion and two time Olympian. His reality show, “Be Good Johnny Weir” is a ratings hit on Sundance Channel. Johnny's intelligence and quick wit have made him a popular guest with the national media; a sampling of his post Olympic visits include “The Tonight Show” “George Lopez” “Bonnie Hunt” “Regis & Kelly” and “Chelsea Lately”. He was recently a judge of the Miss USA pageant and is becoming a fixture on the hottest red carpet.

Johnny on fashion:
Fashion has always been one of my biggest inspirations. Through fashion you can interpret so many sides of your personality and show the world your unique style. Fashion inspires me every day, and of course it inspires my skating and performances.

“Where does Johnny skate next?” is a common question among his many passionate fans. Weir's fans travel from afar for a chance to see their idol perform. Johnny's Facebook page has nearly forty thousand extremely active members. A recent post by his agent announced an upcoming skating appearance but did not disclose the location. Fans jumped on the news and attempted to discern the location.

“Crème de la Crème with Johnny and Alyssa will be a spectacular evening” said event MC Jon Jordon, WDIV-TV 4's fashion editor. “Fashion from le Salon Couture is always stunning. To highlight their exclusive selections with these amazing performers will add a new dimension and ambiance to the show.”

Dates: Sunday June 27th 7PM; Monday June 28 2PM
Venue: Suburban Ice Arena, 54755 Broughton Rd. Macomb, MI.

Owned by Alexis Williams and Jonas Pascua, Le Salon is one of the Detroit area's finest bridal and evening wear boutiques. Located at 212 W 11 Mile Rd in Royal Oak., Le Salon Couture features dresses and accessories from exclusive designers including “The Carrie Dress” by Vivienne Westwood, Rosa Clara, Jenny Packham, Jesus Del Pozo and more.
