Grammy Award winning and NEW Columbia Records Artist and Actor, T.I., celebrates the launch of Book of Kings Vol. 1 presented by his clothing line, AKOO Clothing Co. in New York City Wednesday night. Featured in the brand’s first-of-its-kind coffee table book, Book of Kings Vol. 1. include T.I., Pharrell, Melody Ehsani, 40 Oz Van, Jonathan Mannion, Iggy Azalea, Lil Duval, Karen Civil, Pusha T, D-Nice, Eva Bleu, Sue Tsai and Amazin Amie. This coffee table book, shot exclusively by photographer Mark Atkinson, was designed to celebrate fashion, art, photography, music and lifestyle through trailblazers leaving their mark in pop culture and fashion.
This private reception for press, celebrities and tastemakers only, was a fully integrated art/fashion gallery where invited guests experienced this exclusive book, which is being heralded as a collector’s item, and saw it come to life with the soundtrack provided by Ms. Nix. Hors d’oeuvres by Evelyn’s Kitchen and Hennessy VS cocktails were served as guests were treated to an exclusive look into fashion and art through this momentous collaboration that as TI said, “Celebrated Swag!”
The event was a throwback to the days when NY events were actually cool and people weren’t so cliqueish. Along with my The Commission show co hosts, the evening was amazing and the drinks were flowing. Everyone even celebrities were in a festive mood, even the ladies at the door were cool. The stars aligned well that night, Akoo clothing was being displayed by live models all night. Overall, great night.
