Young Paris, a musician specializing in Afro-centric beats and signed to Jay Z’s label Roc Nation, is a man who you’d see once and never forget. For proof of this, take a look at him Sunday night at the BET Awards and you can already tell that the man takes fashion seriously.
There’s the shiny silver suit, the multiple necklaces, the nail polish and the elaborate, beautiful white face paint design, which Paris calls his maquillage and which stems from his African heritage.
This keen attention to detail is probably why fashion loves him so much. in 2016, he attended New York Fashion Week for the very first time and he’s already been named an ambassador for 2017 NYFW: Men’s, which begins July 10 in New York City. He’d ultimately like to see more diversity and appreciation of different cultures at fashion week.
