Richie Shazam is more than a great Instagram account. Self-described Renaissance man come sex kitten, the New York native endows the city with his brand of fearless queer glamour. Richie artfully navigates a frenzied social schedule while tending to Franziska Fox—the clothing line he runs with friends Julia Fox and Briana Andalore. When he’s not busy designing clothes, he’s modeling them for art fetish photographers like Terry Richardson or Ryan McGinley. Outside of fashion, Richie curates art shows, the next featuring Julia's photos at MX Gallery in May. I trailed Richie from sunup to sundown, witnessing his love of art through a myriad of outfit changes and poses (see thigh-high boots and a mini dress which replace lace-up see-through pants over black thong).
