On Thursday night, we joined Axe at Pop 14 as they debuted their collections for the White Label Collective designers.
The exclusive preview included menswear collections including Whipping and Post, Eysom, Oberima Afriyie, 1K, and Atelier Savas. Axe and Esquire have teamed up with the designers to receive mentoring by Billy Reid and John Legend. “I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t have game-changing mentors in my life that helped me hone my craft and open doors,” said John Legend.
The event held display presentations for each of the mini collections in a large dimmed venue, with a live DJ and an open bar. The designers were also on the scene to talk to guests and potential buyers.
In addition to debuting their collections during New York Fashion Week, the five designers will also have their work featured in Esquire magazine as part of helping aspiring menswear collections hit mainstream.

Axe gives unique and innovative designers the chance to shine on the worlds largest fashion platform that they could not otherwise.
