The Style of Sporting KC Players

The unveiling of the AC78 fashion line for men, during MLS All Star Game Week.

Sporting KC players strutted their athletic looks on the runway for the unveiling of teammate Aurelien Collin’s new menswear line, AC78, before adoring fans.

The fashion show was part of the week-long MLS All Star game festivities on Tuesday, July 30 at the Kansas City Power & Light District.

Collin, a defender on the Sporting KC team of French nationality, collaborated with Tom Paolini of Paolini Garment Co., on the fashion line.

“I have been into fashion since I was very young,” says Aurelien Collin. “When I came to America, I had more freedom to pursue my passion.”
