Hyundai is making inroads (pun intended) in the fashion and lifestyle set, with StyleNite, a unique event hosted by renowned celebrity stylist Ty Hunter, bringing together fashion, music and automotive design. The most recent event, held in Los Angeles, was the perfect moment to harken the debut of its new 2020 flagship SUV, Hyundai Palisade, driving into town summer 2019.
Celebrity stylist Ty Hunter, best known for his work with Beyoncé, Michelle Williams, and Kelly Rowland and Korean star designer Youn Hee Park of GREEDILOUS created a capsule collection of 20 looks inspired by the Palisade, incorporating the company’s logo and playful hints of the new SUV using unique prints and shapes.
The Hyundai Palisade officially debuted on November 28 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, with K-Pop group BTS as the face of the campaign. The event was the first of its kind for Hyundai, with the goal of connecting the company to a young, trend focused audience by teaming up with notable names in the fashion industry.
“I feel really honored to have a global brand like Hyundai supporting our creativity and working together to reach a new generation of customers with this product,” said Ty Hunter. “Through StyleNite, we captured the youthful culture that Hyundai pursues.”
