NFL player Victor Cruz of the New York Giants is covering the latest issue of AQ magazines Spring Fashion Issue.  Shot by photographer Chad Griffith, the Dirty Jerz-native styled in designer brands including Etro, Lanvin, Salvatore Ferragamos, Maison Martin Margiela, Marni, Marc Jacob, Givenchy, Commes Des Garcon, KITH and more for his fashion spread. Rachel Johnson of Thomas Faison Agency styled Cruz for this issue.

Inside, Cruz talked to writer Michael Dolan about being a kid from Jerz, Milan Fashion Week, his clothing line Young Whales, fashion influences, still being rooted in the community, being a role model for young kids, athletes being into fashion and much more.

On being a kid from Paterson, NJ (the inner city) now traveling to Milan for Fashion Week and seeing people wearing completely different clothing:

“Here I am walking the streets of Milan,” Cruz says, “a kid from Paterson, where guys don’t even make it out of their own town.  And it’s a different world. I see people wearing completely different clothing. What we would call a (fashion) risk here in the US, they wear it every day. It was inspiring. And then it grew to this bigger thing, where we were almost overwhelmed by the amount of people that were into it from Giants fans to fashionheads that liked our stuff. It’s grown so much, it’s like my baby, the way I treat it

On his clothing line Young Whales:

“It started as a means to get some secondary income during the lockout”.
