Backstage with A$AP Rocky at the Hood By Air Show Photos by Liz Barclay

The scene at Hood By Air's runway show was moody and eerie, with a very wavy collection presented to a hushed audience who saw a show unlike any other so far at New York Fashion Week. The fog, lighting, and music all set the spooky tone for the awesome weirdness that had people tensed up for a collection from a brand that's gaining massive momentum.

But backstage with A$AP Rocky, it was all jokes and good times. As one of the first rappers to support the brand, Dat PMF has been on board with HBA since his early days as a fashion killa, and no one can deny the man when he says, "Hood By Air, man I started that." And he took his support one step further by closing the show for his homie, designer Shayne Oliver. The rapper's been sitting front row for a minute now, but this was his debut as a runway model. The leader of the A$AP Mob wasn't fazed at all, jumping up on a table while he chilled backstage so we could get some better shots while he waited for his cue to walk. Rocky already knows he be Dat Pretty Mothafucka, but who knew he'd be able to model a runway show with the best of them?
