On September 10, 2022, New York Streetwear Designer DripOnSociety’s 14N1 in collaboration with A$AP Mob’s founding member A$AP Illz, presented MORE FASHION, LESS GUN VIOLENCE at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). At the legendary NYC’s Robert S. Fulton Residences, located at 21 West 17th Street, New York, the runway showcased collections directed by A$AP Illz, presenting his streetwear brand, Disco Inferno as well as 14N1 Clothing. As part of the show, children from the Fulton Residences opened for the fashion show with a choreographed set followed by a showcase of talent.
The lineup of guests included rapper A$AP Twelvyy, rapper A$AP Nast, rapper Hass Irv, rapper Bobby Nice, rapper, Lil Sccrt, rapper Yung Bans, artist Sakoya Wynter (daughter of JoJo Hailey from Jodeci), model Sober Yung Walter, model Prince Darko, model Johan Galaxy, designer Aleali May, journalist George Wayne, Soho House’s Karen Sanchez, Nightlife Impresario Richie Romero and Bravo NY Housewives’ Dorinda Medley, among others.
One of the three founding members of the A$AP Mob collective, A$AP Illz founded the Disco Inferno brand in 2017 in New York City, inspired initially by a skater punk gothic theme. Illz felt the need to come up with his own brand, because he is traditionally a street model but was inspired by the Disco 80’s era punk aesthetic. Disco Inferno has dressed A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Gunna, Famous Dex, and more.
Steven Hanson established the DripOnSociety brand in 2019, inspired heavily by vintage 70’s urban overtones mixed with rock and roll, for an unorthodox combination. Hanson took his knowledge of working on the floor of Wall Street and his expertise in the music business after previously being signed to Fat Man Scoop’s AV8 Records and took that knowledge to begin stitching culture to streetwear on his terms.
Dabbling in hip-hop music, Hanson was then propelled into the world of fashion after being featured on the song, “Montana Dreams,” with rapper French Montana. 14N1 has garnered national distribution and recognition and has been seen worn by Trapion, Lil’ Migo, Jay Gwaupo, Ayleks, Bobby Nice, Itzbizkit, and others.
