Some may not know it, but aside from being a Boston Celtics star, Jaylen Brown is actually a fan of high fashion. In fact, he yearned to get a sense of what it’s like to see renowned fashion icons in the flesh. In the process, Brown sometimes thought the unthinkable, and it reached a crescendo when he decided to sneak into a fashion show.
A man with a plan
Brown has attended several fashion shows in the past, including those of Valentino and Raf Simmons. However, the one event he will never forget was a Louis Vuitton fashion show where the works of the late Virgil Abloh were featured.
According to Brown, the fact that he and Abloh were both black already made him special. But what makes him even more unforgettable is that he wasn’t even invited to this event.
“I wasn’t invited to that one but I went on a trip,” Brown said on “All The Smoke” in 2019. “I’m like, ‘I can’t miss this. It’s as if there had never been a person of my color as designer Louis V. That’s history.

When you see the list, go crazy. Act like it’s a scandal’…I’m done by sitting next to Kanye [West] and Travis [Scott].”

“Based on what I want to do, the missions I want to accomplish, it was the right decision,” Brown said of the deal via ESPN.
“People have concerns or criticisms etc., but in the world we live in there are concerns and criticisms in everything and anything,” he added. “I feel like it’s a good time for me in my special life. I’m excited to build, create and do things that I always imagined I wanted to do on and off the pitch. .”
