Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek Designs for Charity...
Vera and Evan are collaborating on a menswear line and designed one womenswear item, a gorgeous chocolate and gold gown inspired by the Ferrero Rocher Chocolate packaging.

Evan chatted with Tres Chic Style about the new line and shared his excitement for his next chapter in his life.
