The highly anticipated runway-to-buy Tommy x Zendaya collection made its debut at Paris Fashion Week on March 2nd and all we can say is that it gave a whole new meaning to #BlackGirlMagic! The runway show featured 59 black models all ranging from ages 18 to 70. The 70’s inspired catwalk was equipped with lights, afros and groovy tunes!
Zendaya has always been a fashionista and it comes as no surprise to us that Tommy Hilfiger wanted to work with her after his four year stint with Gigi Hadid. Hilfiger is no stranger to producing amazing garments and collaborating with equally amazing people!
When asked about coming together with Hilfiger for this collection Zendaya replied “He told me how I would be able to truly have creative control from concept to clothing, down to the font on the packaging. I was in heaven when I showed up with my inspiration boards and a million ideas, and I was allowed to just go for it, with all the support in the world.”
Hilfiger shared in equal excitement with collaborating with the actress “Zendaya has become a global icon, using fashion to make bold statements while always staying true to herself. Our capsule collection will fuse her eclectic style with the Americana spirit of our brand.”
Many legends graced the runway, such as Beverly Peele, Beverly Johnson, Veronica Webb, Debra Shaw, and Chrystèle Saint Louis Augustin. The show was closed by none other than the incomparable Grace Jones!
