hood by air

in 2011 i started developing hba collections then directing the campaigns, then directing and producing hood by air presentations. shortly, that evolved into becoming partner. i developed hood by air from a underground streetwear phenomenon to a financially successful youth culture “shock from the future.” 

winning both the lvmh prize and cfda award our surge of energy was a fashion industry game-changer. a new model for ready-to-wear has been made.

as a collective, we were really good at shows. it was unspoken and winning. my wish was to use the runway to evolve a few ideas that needed an update, like menswear was an ignored platform and in there, we as a collective became the work. it was an experiment in love fame money and chaos.

the best way to experience hood by air and what we did together is to watch the shows. start here
