Nigerian Afrobeats singer, David Adeleke, known professionally as Davido, has graced the state at the ongoing New York Fashion Week.
The NY Fashion Week, is a bi-annual event usually hosted in February and September where international fashion brans showcase their new collections to buyers, the press, and the general public.
The 2nd edition for this year is holding between September 9 to September 14, and popular sportswear brand, Puma was among the showcase.
One of the highlights of the night was when award-winning singer, Davido wore a Pum outfit and walked the runway.
Fashion month returned to New York in a big way, with five-and-a-half-days of in-person runway shows including Gabriela Hearst, Prabal Gurung, LaQuan Smith, Collina Strada and Batsheva, hosted in iconic locations around the city.
Carolina Herrera creative director Wes Gordon showed a collection of lush florals inspired by “The Secret Garden” inside The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, while designer Victor Glemaud presented knits on rollerskating models at Rockefeller Center’s famed rink. Jason Wu’s collection — sheer elegance in beaded gowns and digital prints — showed in a space overlooking the East River at Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport, and Ulla Johnson took over the Beaux Arts Court of the Brooklyn Museum.
Tommy Hilfiger, meanwhile, teamed up with British designer Richard Quinn for a modern take on classic Americana on the Brooklyn waterfront, against the New York skyline. The show, a tribute to another former icon of the city — Andy Warhol’s Factory studio — was an A-List affair, with Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Barker, John Legend, and Kate Moss among those in attendance, with Moss watching her daughter Lila walk the runway. Barker later joined the stage for a drum performance at the end during the models’ final procession.
Davido is an ambassador of the global brand Puma which also launched Black Station, a 3D spatial playground, in a bid to create a unique web3 space that will enable the NFT community to have a personal experience.
