Last Night In NYC, BET Digital held their first How to Rock Kicks event at Milk Studios in Soho, and Team SFPL was there to experience the fashion moment firsthand.

The fashion show brought together five celebrities to curate their own fashion presentation based around sneakers. The fashion show, which was live streamed on BET.com was meant to discuss and present the intersection of hip hop and sneaker culture. Hip hop figures and sneaker connoisseurs: Fabolous, Pusha T, Casey Veggies, Syd Tha Kyd, and Vashtie came together to present their different street wear ensembles that complement sneakers.

As shown above, Fabolous walked the runway along with his son Johan Jackson and Emily B‘s daughter Taina, as they paid homage to the 90’s throwback fashion trends during Fab’s segment.

Hosts Diggy Simmons and Tracy G spoke to each of the fashion curators about their inspiration behind the looks throughout the night. Sounds were provided by NYC’s DJ Brittany Sky. Not only did the event focus on fashion in hip hop culture today, but BET.com took time to pay tribute to the late hip hop legend, Sean Price. Along with the celebrity talent that made the show happen, recognizable faces such as; Mack Wilds, June Ambrose, Bridget Kelly, Mayor, Calvan Fowler, Sole Collector‘s Editor-in-Chief, Gerald Flores were also in attendance to watch.
