Lately Designer Tommy Hilfiger had an Interview with LuckyMag.com and got asked about the American Express Fashion Show (Photos) which got accompanied by a live set by the Cobras. Check out what he had to say:
Fittingly, the runway presentation that followed was accompanied by a live set by Cobra Starship. As the models (and even a few Basset Hounds) walked the runway, we spied many guests shimmying in their seats—and one Erin Fetherston, who dates Cobra’s lead singer Gabe Saporta, happily snapping photos of her sweetheart from the front row. Adores.
I know this is a little bit late because the Performance was on January 21 – check out the Photos – but I’ve now found a Video of the Party. Looks like the Party was a lot of fun. The Cobras start appearing around 1:17…
Gabe was a guest DJ at Mickey’s Bar and Grill in Lancaster (Ohio) yesterday (Feb. 17) and the Video doesn’t have a good (sound) quality.
What do you get when you mix preppy style, dapper pop music, and dogs walking down a runway? A runway show that’s so hot it closed fashion week! Electro pop sensation Cobra Starship rocked the catwalk last night (Feb. 16) at this season’s American Express show with Tommy Hilfiger. The style icon has always had a deep love of music, saying “when I was younger I wanted to be a rock star but I quickly realized I couldn’t so I decided to dress like one.”
With no plans to play Madison Square Garden anytime soon, the designer’s fervor for music has instead caused him to enlist the musical talents of Cobra Starship to perform as his Spring 2012 offerings walked the runway. The debonair musicians played their latest hits on a stage erected at the end of the runway, dressed head to toe in Tommy.
The sparkle continued as the collection modeled on “The Hilfigers” — a fictional, all-American family made up of eclectic and gorgeous characters including a child, an elderly man, and a dog. For the first time ever, the designer’s fashionably fictitious family came to life as they strutted down the catwalk to Cobra’s animated sound.
