New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020 was graced by a bevy of unorthodox looks and unexpected guests. The most surprising cast of all, though, was perhaps the ensemble of Pornhub stars who stormed the runway on Tuesday rocking fashion label Namilia’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection.

The Herotica show, a collaboration between Namilia and Pornhub, was live-streamed on the adult platform for viewers around the world. The outrageous oriental-themed collection seeks to challenge fetishization, the male gaze, and white supremacy, so an all-Asian cast was enlisted to walk down the runway.

Alongside other Asian adult stars, Asa Akira made her runway debut sporting a kimono-inspired bodysuit with the words “cock wrecker.” Other looks included Clueless-inspired latex skirts with rhinestone “dick dollar signs,” “cock-wrecking” robot hands, and a large takeout container with faux ramen noodles and phallic shrimp, according to i-D.

“We castrate your power icon and slurp it as cock-flavored ramen soup,” the brand described.

Namilia, recognized for its ‘Dickini’ bikini tops, envisioned to confront the objectification of Asian women with this collection. As such, you’ll find traditional Chinese elements taking prominence in the looks.

Nan Li, cofounder of Namilia, told i-D that the capsule was “really personal” to him. As someone whose parents relocated to Germany from China, he was no stranger to racism. “I wanted to showcase Asian pride and Asian empowerment,” he explained.

The show was also a commentary about the stigma around sex work. “[We wanted to] give it a new context with the fashion show,” said Li.
