Mike Amiri Credits Axl Rose for Being His Inspiration
The Hollywood Reporter interviewed fashion designer Mike Amiri who credits Axl Rose for being part of the inspiration behind his clothing line. Check out some Axl Rose inspired looks below! In the interview he said
On his Axl Rose obsession: Every collection I design has a little bit of Axl Rose; I sneak it in somewhere, because when i was younger these guys were larger than life to me. When they reunited in 2016, his team reached out and said that somehow Axl saw a bit of this brand and he really loved it and was wondering if I’d like to help style a couple pieces. I ended up styling his entire look for the entire tour, head to toe Amiri. I got to meet him and talk to him a few times about Hollywood and growing up in L.A. and his origins of style. Then we did a Guns ’N Roses collab last year in partnership with Maxfield [and Universal Music Group’s music merch company Bravado].
