Theophilus London Turning Tables for Fashion Week Fêtes
Feb 10, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
Last night, the dapper rapper Theophilus London traded in the mic for a turntable, and took his turn as DJ to the fiery fêtes of NY Fashion Week. The FashionIndies hit the Joseph Abboud after party with London as the DJ on the invite. Fashionably late, and several dirty 90s hip hop songs in, we realized it was not Theophilus spinning. The new garde fashionisto had already made moves for a more (literally) underground party at the W Hotel's former Downstairs, the new Lilium. Well played, sir. We made our way W-wards and got down to his rap ass rap set. Don't get too bummed, catch his set tonight, if you can.
He's touting his tunes all over town to the fashionable elite. Next stop, the Rebecca Minkoff after party at the Darby Downstairs tonight. Then he's setting the mood for Rachel Roy's after party on Monday.
So, if you're a fashion journalist, he's playing for you. Find your way in.
