• Our good friends at Jock Hall Agency helped us cover the NYFW 15 presentation from Los Angeles based technical outerwear specialists Ortiz Industry & DUCATI Triumph NYC. Titled “EMPOWERED”, this exclusive private event kicked off NYFW F/W15 featuring an evening of music, fashion and art. Integrating multiple art forms, the party put the future of fashion on display, with music from DJ Stretch Armstrong, food from Chef Roblé and art by Stephen Holding. Many notable attendees included Damian Lillard, Jorge “Gitoo” Wright, Sharifa Murdock, Marcus Troy, Edwina Kulego, Samia M.Grand-Pierre, Trae Harris, Dynasty Ogun, Carolyn, NG, Vonny V, Brigitte Segura, Third NYC, Greg Cummins, Freddy Browne, Jovel Roystan, Stephen Holding, My Uber Life, Kadeem Johnson, Eli Soul, Ashley Owens, Monica Reyes, Gita, Suspects NYC, and more.

• During one of New York’s busiest time frames of the year, NYFW still hosted many surprises such as the release of the Almighty 7 Pop-Up at wallplay’s Blank Shop featuring artist Jay West. Almighty 7 Apparel features a limited edition roster of athletic designs that channel the virtues of spiritually and philosophical camaraderie.
The always enthusiastic Jay West was all smiles that evening, personally greeting eager shoppers and even spending some time behind the counter completing purchases. He also received some special visits from rapper A$AP Ferg, Les Twins, Whitney Gale-Benta, Brian “BK The Artist” Kirhagis, A$AP Twelvy, Zach Lavine (2015 NBA Dunk Champion), Mr. Flawless, Peri Dash, Laura Styles, Amir Obe and Chaz Brown.
