Event: BET's "How To Rock: Kicks" Fashion Show


Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending BET Digital's first "How to Rock: Kicks" fashion show. Let me tell you, BET sure knows how to put on a good show! Five sneaker expertsFabolous, Pusha T, Casey Veggie, Syd Tha Kyd, and Va$htiecame together to showcase a capsule collection surrounding their favorite shoes. Audience members sampled Hennessy cocktails and vegan dishes while learning more about the curators' style influences that inspired their runway looks. Everyone did an amazing job, but there were three sneaker connoisseurs that stood out from the rest.

Fabolous: Centered around the 90’s,  Fab’s curated show had an Aalyiah and Fresh Prince-esq feelold school Tommy Hilfiger bandeau, baggy jeans, 8 Ball jackets, and FILA jump suit, all paired with retro shoes. Fab even paid homage to Biggie with a vintage Coogie sweater.

Va$htie: By far the most impressive show, Va$htie showcased her own designs from her collaboration with Puma. Each model resembled her personal street-goth style — models sported a dark lip with athletic casual shirts and dresses.

Pusha T: If I had to describe Pusha’s show in three words it would be: effortless, modern, and cool. The rapper's styling was very impressive. Pusha mixed streetwear with high-fashion elements to create perfect outfits for any stylish man.

It was refreshing to attend a fashion show that really resonates with my style. Thank you BET for inviting me to celebrate kicks and its influence on hip cop culture!

  1. This place was amazing! Great food, it's smaller than others I guess but it is still a fair sized fun. The decor at the best birthday party nyc was amazing as every note of music reverberates off the beautiful walls. Everything about this venue is nothing less than 5 stars.
