France’s PARIS – Lil Durk’s love of fashion is evident from the numerous references to BRANDS on his most recent album, 7220. On June 23, the Chicago rapper went one step further by walking the runway at Amiri’s Spring/Summer 2023 presentation during Paris Fashion Week.
Video of the occasion showed Durk modeling pieces from the most recent collection by designer Mike Amiri while maintaining his typical air of composure. The 1990s classic “93 ’til Infinity” by Souls of Mischief played through the speakers while the OTF leader strolled around in a full-print hoodie, white popper shorts, and white high-top sneakers.

Smurk was specifically chosen for the concert, which is likely not surprising given that he frequently sports Amiri clothing and mentioned the company in his 2019 Meek Mill collaborative song “Bougie” (“I think I’m bougie, Mike Amiri trousers cost me two G’s”).
Durk shared behind-the-scenes images from his runway debut on Instagram and commented, “I appreciate you for letting me be a part of history and opening up new doors we genuine rockstars @mikeamiri.”
The newest rapper to showcase his skills on the catwalk is Lil Durk. While Offset from the Migos has recently walked the runways for Jeremy Scott and Off-White, Dipset icon Jim Jones made his modeling debut at Off-Fall/Winter White’s 2022/23 presentation in Paris in February, drawing attention from Kanye West.
Durk is undoubtedly making the most of his time in Paris. The native of Chicago attended Givenchy’s Men’s Spring-Summer 2023 fashion presentation on Tuesday together with other famous people including Tyga, Kodak Black, and Westside Gunn.
