Tinie Tempah to show at London Fashion Week Men's
Tinie Tempah has confirmed he will stage a show for his label Disturbing London during the next edition of London Fashion Week Men's in January.
The rapper and style icon founded the record and clothing label 10 years ago and has been heavily involved in London Fashion Week Men's (formerly London Collections Men) for a number of years as official ambassador.
He told the Evening Standard his first fashion show will be spectacle to rival that of the world famous Victoria's Secrets shows. “I don’t want to say too much but in January there is something special that will be happening in regards to myself and clothing,” Tempah told the publication.
“I just want to take some of the influence of things I’ve seen not only in Italy but when I’ve gone to Victoria’s Secret shows, just incorporating everything into one exciting show. It will happen in the second week of January. So look out for it - it will be very fun,” he said.
Tempah was speaking at the launch of a collaboration between Disturbing London, known as DSTRB LDN, and vaping brand Vype to mark the release of its new Pebble product. The collaboration has resulted in a range of T-shirts which will be showcased in London, and then at a number of Vype pop-ups in Manchester and Glasgow.
The first Vype Pebble Store will be open from 30 November to 3 December at Rock & Raven gallery in London. Shoppers will experience immersive art from DSTRB LDN acts, be able to purchase the limited edition DSTRB LDN x Vype range and have a Vype Pebble hand-customised by DSTRB LDN artist, Koby Martin.
The pop-ups in Manchester and Glasgow will feature performances from DSTRB LDN acts.
London Fashion Week Men's takes place from 6-9 January.
