Streaming star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has added another incredible accomplishment to his resume after walking the stage during New York Fashion Week, one of the world’s biggest annual fashion shows.
Regarded as one of the “Big Four” fashion shows alongside London, Milan, and Paris, New York Fashion Week has always brought in some of the biggest names in the industry to style their new looks and outdo their biggest competitors.
It is the pinnacle of high fashion and is often reserved for the most elite of the elite – which, now, Ninja seems to be a part of, as he was flown to the Big Apple to walk the stage and showcase his fashion prowess.
Ninja took to the East Coast state with Red Bull, one of his biggest long-term sponsors, to appear for MLS side New York Red Bulls, who will be kicking off their season on March 1 – almost four weeks after Ninja’s walk.
Ninja’s role was as part of the MLS kit launch, where each team took to the stage to show off their new jerseys for 2020 as the league celebrates 25 seasons. He donned the black and red Red Bulls jersey over an orange track jacket, complete with navy tracksuit bottoms and bright red sneakers.
Posting some of the images to Twitter, Ninja describes the experience as: “Just another incredible achievement for me,” before thanking his “Red Bull family.”

Of course, Ninja has become much bigger than simply being a gamer or a streamer now. He is a universal mainstream star in his own right and was treated as such when he visited New York City.
In the middle of the famous Herald Square, right next to Macy’s flagship store, a billboard depicting Ninja in a Red Bulls jersey hung high over the heads of the New Yorkers, which not many professional gamers can say they’ve experienced.

Although Ninja on a fashion show may sound odd at first, the pictures prove that he’s got a knack for it, and who knows – maybe one day he’ll be up there representing the biggest brands in fashion.
