The skater told us what we can expect to see when he’s on the rink during Fashion Week — and even shared his not-so-romantic plans for Valentine’s Day!

There’s no denying the fact that Johnny Weir can captivate a crowd on the ice, but it’s not just his stellar moves that has everyone watching — it’s his eye-catching get-ups! So, how much time does he spend collaborating on his costumes? “I design everything and I’m inspired by everything. Every dirty trash bag in the street, every pile of snow,” the skater said at the Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center on Feb. 9. The skater even gave us a sneak peek of the costumes he’s going to wear during his highly-anticipated performance at the Elise Overland presentation!

“Elise and I are both Norwegian, so we took a lot of inspiration from the icy, Viking culture,” he said. “It [the costume] has to be a shock, but I’m going to look very kind of modern, Sex Pistol-y barbarian.”

Considering Johnny has his plate full with Fashion Week, it’s no surprise he hasn’t decided what to do for Valentine’s Day. “I’m going to sit alone in a dark room and drink brandy. I have no heart and I have no love to give on Valentine’s Day,” the skater joked when asked about his plans.
