Red Bull Catwalk Studio Presents: (@nasirmazharldn) x (@Skepta) [News]

This is looking set to be one of the hottest collaborations in music and fashion this year…unfortunately for us girls it’s only menswear (sigh). UK grime’s hot boy Skepta will be teaming up with one of the most exciting menswears designers, Nasir Mazhar which in a few weeks time Red Bull Catwalk Studio will be unveiling for London Collections: Men.

Bursting onto the scene in 2008, Mazhar cut his cloth first and foremost as a milliner and fast became a recognised name with his signature box peak bully cap. In 2012 he launched his first ready to wear collection for SS13 – a mix of mens and womenswear that he presented as part of New Gen. Mazhar consequently moved onto the official catwalk in SS14 and since then has been touted as one of Britains most exiting exciting young designers from everyone from the likes of Vogue to Dazed & Confused.

North London rapper Skepta needs little introduction. One of the original founders of the Boy Better Know crew alongside his brother JME, he is widely considered a UK grime veteran who pushed the genre through from the underground to the mainstream.

The collaboration between the two artists is a natural one with Mazhar using music as an inspiration for his work and specifically grime artists as the musicians of choice to provide the soundtracks to his presentations. The pair have recently been in Red Bull Studios creating a unique soundtrack for the show at Victoria House on Tuesday 17th June, which will also see Skepta walk in a jacket designed in collaboration with Nasir.

Through working with Red Bull Catwalk Studio, Mazhar is able to take his vision to a new level and host his dream after party, a full Nasir experience, at the Metropolis strip club in Bethnal Green. Together with Skepta they are curating their ideal line up featuring an all-star line up of artists – stay tuned for more details to come.
