Chromat, Cushine et Ochs and more teamed up with Marvel for a roaring fashion event.
NORTH AMERICA–Marvel Studios partnered with a roster of fashion designers to celebrate the release of the film Black Panther during New York Fashion Week, Feb. 8-16.
On Feb. 12, designers including Chromat, Cushnie et Ochs, Fear of God, Ikiré Jones, Laquan Smith, Sophie Theallet and Tome presented couture pieces inspired by the latest Marvel film that were installed in a Wakanda-inspired venue. According to Marvel, each designer was selected for their approach to empowerment and individualism through fashion. Additional Black Panther capsule collections from Brother Vellies, Dourien Fletcher, and Josh Bennett were also on display. Each collection is now available on each brand’s respective site.
Following the event, each of the custom looks was auctioned off at CharityBuzz.com in support of Save the Children, an international humanitarian organization.
“Black Panther is visually stunning, from the backdrop of Wakanda to the beautiful, intricate costumes, with fashion and technology playing an important role throughout,” says Jimmy Pitaro, chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “Each of our partners has taken inspiration from the incredible storytelling, empowering characters and iconic look of the movie, while bringing their own unique aesthetic to the designs.”
Black Panther is now in theaters worldwide.
