Next Wednesday, Nanette Lepore runway show attendees are in for a double feature.
Essence.com reports that the NYC womenswear designer has enlisted Brooklyn-based producer, singer, and Fugees collaborator John Forte to perform three original songs during her Lincoln Center fashion show.
"His artistic talent reflects the feeling we all have at the moment of wanting something handmade and unique," Lepore said of working with Forte, who sat front row at her show this spring.
Didn't receive an invite but still want to tune in? The show will live-stream on nanettelepore.com at 11 a.m. on September 15.
