A lot has changed for Matthew Noszka in the past couple of years. Back then, he was a student at Point Park University, waiting tables on the South Side and helping his dad with construction jobs. These days, he's a mega model booking jobs around the world.
One of his latest gigs is walking the runway during New York Fashion Week for Philipp Plein, the German designer behind his namesake luxury brand. On Monday night, celebs such as Kylie Jenner and Madonna (pictured at right; Associated Press) packed the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan for Mr. Plein's American Fashion Week debut. (Previously, the designer presented his collections in Milan.)
Mr. Noszka wore a sportswear look (see below) with a silver coat with fur-trimmed hood, crisp hi-tops and a black turtleneck pulled up to his nose. Before the show, he posted a photo of himself backstage on Instagram (pictured above).
The collection also featured bedazzled and distressed denim, oversized outerwear, thigh-high boots and evening wear-inspired gowns with an edgy street-style twist.
