ABC/Randy HolmesWith New York Fashion Week less than three months away, one of the season’s most anticipated shows will likely be the one featuring Spider-Man star Zendaya‘s fashion line with Tommy Hilfiger.
In an new Instagram post, Hilfiger revealed that the location for the upcoming TommyNow Fall 2019 show, inspired by Zendaya, will be held at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY.
According to a statement released by Hilfiger, obtained by Fashionista.com, Zendaya was personally inspired by the greats like Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Patti LaBelle and The Supremes to take the fashion show uptown.
“Zendaya’s desire to bring TommyNow to Harlem felt like an amazing next step in expressing her vision for the future,” Hilfiger said in a statement. “Her statement-making point of view in everything she does is what makes her such an inspiring collaborator — it is an honor to continue to provide her with a platform in the fashion industry to share this.”
Hilfiger’s TommyNow concept, which was launched in 2016, offers a “see-now-buy-now” strategy that allows fans to purchase the the actual collections unveiled at the designer’s interactive shows, fresh off the catwalk.
TommyNow Fall 2019 show by TommyXZendaya will take place on Sunday, September 8.
