In lieu of traditional models, skateboarders wore his collection while doing tricks on ramps and platforms. Noted Aoki, "We wanted to do something that was a bit destructive, also very unique, and have the energy of where this all came from."

Aoki also teamed up with artist David Choe to put some finishing touches on the exhibition.

Choe's oil print accents Aoki's favorite collection piece: a jacket he wore on NBC's "Today."
