This is the first time Trap Music has hit the Catwalk in the Lincoln Centre during NYFW. Producer/DJ Nima Yamini made a fashion statement and dared to bring Trap Music into the Lincoln Centre during this prestigious fashion show. Rafael Cennamo presented a lineup full of rich gowns, which was inspired by the Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors, which were artfully draped, embroidered or wrapped around the body. Chunky hand-painted gold cashmere knits, worn over several gowns, served as a new kind of evening jacket.

“I thought it was surreal being able to play a set inside The Lincoln Centre, let alone Trap Music.

 Then to have the mix premiered by Jay Z’s blog “Life+Times” is a whole other level of excitement.” – NIma Yamini

Nima’s NYFW Mix for designer Rafael Cennamo’s show, features artists such as XXYYXX, Brazilian Girls, Melaaz, Peaches, New Young Pony Club, Sebastien Tellier, Make The Girl Dance, Flosstradamus ( and Major Lazer. The NYFW Mix starts off with the slow enduring sounds of Brazilian Girls – Homme with sexy french lyrics, transitioning into Melaaz – Non, Non, Non which is a french take of the Dawn Penn reggae classic No, No, No. The Mix then slows down to artist XXYYXX – About You into XXYYXX – End Of Time which has an intricate sound, making it ear-gasmic. New Young Pony – Ice Cream then lifts up the sounds with a playful dance-punk sound, finishing off with the Trap sounds of Flosstradamus, Major Lazer, Make The Girl Dance and Peaches.
