Featuring live performances from Paper Plane Project, DJ Butcher and Eloquence & Truths, as well as a mini skate ramp and street skating jam supported by Westsyde, the event captured the essence of the new menswear brand and its skate, surf and street influences.
An inverted Hills Hoist clothesline was used as part of the display
aMBUSH Gallery’s exhibition space was transformed, with an upside down Hills Hoist clothesline providing a centerpiece for the room and a unique way of displaying samples of King of Nothing’s clothes.
Guests were entertained by DJ’s and a mini skating ramp
