It was only a matter of time. It was bound to happen. After filling the pages of Thrasher, Transworld, Skateboarder and The Skateboardmag since he was a teenager, Alien Workshop pro Dylan Rieder hit the big time, appearing in the pages of Vogue Magazine's September 2012 issue.
Considered the bible of fashion, this year's September issue features "The Vogue 120", which celebrates designers, models and trendsetters, all of whom are under 45 years old and are currently changing the shape and direction of the current styles and movements within fashion.
In an article written by legendary Vogue contributor Hamish Bowles, and renowned photographer Norman Jean Roy, Rieder is featured among upcoming actors, models, rappers and fashion designer Alexander Wang, who's clothes are worn in the spread.
In the article, according to Bowles, Rieder is considered among one of the young trendsetters who's, "bringing fashion to life right now... and for years to come." Skateboarders have been aware of Rieder's burgeoning fashion aesthetic since 2009 when shoe company Gravis first introduced the world to Rieder's first signature shoe.
A hybrid skate dress shoe, the DYLAN LO took an initial round of ribbing to become a popular and now often imitated skate silhouette.

Blending functionality with fashion, the DYLAN was the final nail in the coffin for the bulky skate shoes of the past.
