For their second design collaboration, Zendaya and Tommy Hilfiger brought New York Fashion Week to Harlem's iconic Apollo Theater. With an ode to both 1970's fashion and the African-American community, the duo transformed the runway into a block party bash. The show included live music performances, dancing down the runway, and a full-on block party. The '70s city street-themed set even included two retro convertible cars, which models danced and walked around. A diverse cast of models included Grace Bol, Halima, and Winnie Harlow who rocked the runway and South African model Candice Swanepoel sparkled in a metallic halter neck jumpsuit while Ashley Graham wowed the audience with a polka dot dress and velvet platform heels while being pregnant. The front row, lined with celebrities including models Gigi and Bella Hadid and the design world’s elite, joined other attendees in dancing along to Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” and “Move on Up” by Curtis Mayfield. Creative direction by the talented Alexander de Betak took the event to a whole new level. ​

This event was produced by Samantha Vazquez for Bureau Betak
