Tommy Hilfiger is bringing his TommyNow show back to New York City after taking sell-out collections around the world with exciting Gigi Hadid and Zendaya collaborations.

The Fall 2019 Zendaya x Tommy experimental runway event will be debuted on Sunday, September 8 in Harlem, NYC with the global brand ambassador.

The designer made the brave switch from creating traditional collections featuring his own ready-to-wear designs to a series of collaborations back in 2016, but he's ready to come back to NYC.

The shows have gone on the road, with a theme park built in Los Angeles in honour of the Tommy x Gigi and Tommy x Zendaya collections, as well as staging a circus in London and a race track in Milan. 

There was even a 'Battle of Versailles'-themed dance floor in Paris, because why not? The blowout parties have been hugely successful, but for their Fall show, Hilfiger and Zendaya are coming back to where it all began.

According to a statement from the brand, Zendaya was inspired to display the collection at the iconic Apollo Theatre in Harlem.

"Zendaya's desire to bring TommyNow to Harlem felt like an amazing next step in expressing her vision for the future," Hilfiger said.

"Her statement-making point of view in everything she does is what makes her such an inspiring collaborator – it is honour to continue to provide her with a platform in the fashion industry to share this."

The dazzling show is set to take place this September, only months after Zendaya's powerful debut runway exhibition.

The 22-year-old Spiderman: Far From Home and Euphoria actress has made a splash across the fashion world, to say the least, with brand sponsorships and ambassador offers coming from all angles.

The likes of Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Patti LaBelle and The Supremes have graced the Apollo stage with their presence over the years, so Zendaya x Tommy has big shoes to fill.

Seeing as the pair already managed to book Grace Jones and a roller disco for their debut show at Paris Fashion Week, we're sure they've got something magical up their couture sleeves.

Azealia Banks is a woman of controversy, and her career has arguably been stalled and stopped multiple times because of her numerous spats with famous faces.

While Paddy Power was taking bets on whether or not the Harlem rapper would even play her set at The Academy last night, the 27-year-old miraculously showed up onstage.

She dedicated her gig to "All the beautiful Irish women", much to the amusement of the crowd of beloved fans who admitted that their rap hero was 'problematic', but has such good tunes you forget about it.

Banks hit the headlines yesterday after an incident on board a flight from Gatwick to Dublin airport, which led to the artist having to take the ferry to Dublin.

She ended up having quite the rant on board the Aer Lingus flight, calling Irish women 'ugly' and launching into a tirade about our Celtic people.

“I’ve had enough of y’all oompa-loompa looking, spray-tanned, crazy-looking b****es tonight,” she raged, which was characteristic of her numerous feuds with other musicians.

“The girls have scurvy, they’re vitamin deficient, need some calcium tablets.”

Reviews of the show claim the rapper brought an impressive set to her debut Irish show, channelling talent which is arguably gone to waste as her Twitter arguments have only done her damage.

Fans know her attitude well enough to dispel any negative thoughts of her social media ranting, choosing instead to focus on her musical prowess, surprisingly soulful voice and explosive rap verses.

“I’m a rude b**ch nigga, what are you made up of?” she spits on her classic hit, 212.

The 'Queen of Ireland' doesn't make any effort to cover up her personality, so take her with a pinch of salt but don't try to deny that the gal has talent.
