Grammy nominee Janelle Monáe will team up with designer Rebecca Minkoff for her NY Fashion Week showcase at Lincoln Center this Friday, September 6, performing live from the runway as part of American Express Unstaged.
Designed to foster collaborations between artists of different mediums, the program emphasizes the importance of digital media and will facilitate live online streaming of the event. Audiences can tune in at 3pm on September 6th but should also look out for ongoing behind-the scenes Instagram updates from Minkoff and Monáe throughout the week.
Monáe, an R&B star turned CoverGirl model, is gearing up for the release of her new album The Electric Lady which drops via Atlantic/Bad Boy Records on September 10th. Minkoff will be showing her S/S 2014 collection along with other designers participating in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
