Designers Phillip and David Blonde are most known for their trendy, iconic creations for Entertainment’s A-List. They delivered an incredible collaboration with the legendary Broadway musical which included stage performances by Aaron Tveit and Billy Porter.
The showstopper was a stunning and bedazzled Ninebot Kickscooter MAX which is a part of the collaboration between the fashion house, and the leaders in electric scooters and other self-balancing personal transportation devices.
This piece was designed as a comfort riding scooter with long distance commuting capabilities, with style, of course. The Ninebot KickScooter MAX powered by Segway scooter was decked out with custom, mesmerizing jewels replicating the showgirl theme and the collection made a quick but memorable appearance as it owned the runway causing the audience applauding for more sights of this one of a kind beauty.
This season, the show is all about modern day show girls and Segway inspired us to create a showgirl on the go with a crystallized Ninebot KickScooter,” said The Blonds.
The scooters were provided for pre-show prep which allowed team members to get around backstage in style, prior to the show. Each scooter was customized and had it fabricated with Precisa crystals in preparation for its Broadway and New York Fashion Week presentation. The Blonds are best known for creating collections that are glamourously over the top with a rebellious twist that cater to the entertainment industry.
Inspired by music, film and the arts, the brand utilizes an wide-range mix of textiles and embroidery to create stunning, handcrafted one of a kind pieces that focus on accentuating the human form.
