On the evening of March 21st, some of Basketball’s hottest all-stars brought new meaning to the word dribble during the 2007 Court-ture fashion show. While the event was hosted by Victoria’s Secrets model Frederique Van Der Wal, all eyes were glued to players Antoine Wright, Kenyon Martin, Channing Frye, David Lee, Jared Jeffries and the legendary, Walt “Clyde” Frazier, who made their first runway appearances in the lower level of the NBA’s Fifth Avenue Store. The good sports traded in their jerseys and donned designer duds provided by Kenneth Cole, Burberry, and Tommy Bahama. The show began with Frazier who wore a tailored ivory suit topped with a matching fedora. And while his smooth struts down the catwalk received a thunderous applause from the hordes of players, fans, and fashionistas crammed into the court-sized retail space, it was pro player Jared Jeffries’s shy smile that stole the show. The event was held in promotion of the NBA’s latest collaboration with celebrity and athlete fashion stylist, Jared M. and Big and Tall retailers, and will be targeting the 6 ft.-and-up male markets for sophisticated sportswear.
