New York’s Hood By Air celebrated their sixth year of existence with an inspired runway show at Milk Studios with an assist from notable performance artist Boychild as well as Harlem emcee A$AP Rocky – marking the brand’s first ever participation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The show featured the female performing artist walking the runway wearing several looks across a laser-lit runway and billowing clouds of smoke, while Rocky was outfitted in various dark pieces from Fall/Winter 2013 that have earned designer Shayne Oliver a cult following since 2007. Additionally, notable attendees included members of the Been Trill collective, Terence Koh and Nicola Formichetti. Following the show, GQ managed to catch up with Rocky to discuss his future plans in fashion – and whether he had the desire to become a designer – with the rapper commenting, “Nah, I’m not a fashion designer. I’ll do collabs, but that’s the most. I’ve already did collabs with a few streetwear brands, but that’s on the high end. I’ll do a collab, but I’m not fashion designer and I have no intention of going and doing that anytime soon.”
