One of the things that will mark the landmark 500th episode of the Simpsons is that Bart Simpson will get a makeover courtesy of fashion designer Jeremy Scott. Done under a licensing deal with Fox Consumer Products, Jeremy Scott will feature his limited edition Bart Simpson Collection as part of this week’s New York Fashion Week.
If you’re wondering who Jeremy Scott is, and why his redesign of Bart Simpson is newsworthy, Scott is well-known in fashion circles, having designed outrageous creations for the likes of Madonna, Katy Perry, and even Lady Gaga. Who knows, we may get a Bart Simpson dressed in feathers and submarine sandwiches after the dust settles.
To find out what the new Bart will look like, you can watch the much anticipated and talked about 500th episode of Matt Groening’s The Simpsons, which is set to premiere this Sunday, February 19, at 8 PM on Fox TV.
