Chachki is one of the most trailblazing winners of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” She was the first drag artist to attend the Met Gala, and wore a dress custom-designed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino. The black corset gown she wore to the 2019 Met Gala was designed with a train in the shape of a glove.

In addition to Moschino, Chachki has also collaborated with other brands, including Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier, Pat McGrath Labs, Richard Quinn, Ivy Park and Playful Promises Lingerie.

Outside of fashion, Chachki has also dabbled in the world of music. Her fourth single, a burlesque track titled “A Lot More Me,” garnered international acclaim and served as the main song for her sold-out global tour of the same name. Chachki also collaborated with pop singer Allie X to release the single “Mistress Violet.”

Chachki joins UTA’s growing roster of drag talent, that also includes Trixie Mattel, Bob the Drag Queen, Shea Couleé, Gottmik, Monét X Change and Katya Zamo.

Recently, Chachki embarked on a self-produced, nationwide Pride tour with Gottmik, which will continue through this month in Canada. In addition to her musical ventures, Chachki made waves in the music industry by starring in the music video for Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ Grammy-winning hit “Unholy” and graced the stage alongside them at this year’s Grammy Awards. The song took home the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

“As a drag artist who has been in the industry for a decade, it’s important to align myself with people who value drag as an art form,” Chachki said in a statement. “With UTA’s wealth of experience in mainstream entertainment, coupled with my drag expertise, we can truly collaborate in this evolving landscape. The best is yet to come.”
