Hamilton sported a classic all-Black suit, with a lace calf-length shirt on the inside. Interestingly, he had company, with Roscoe being dressed up in a Black suit too.

Hamilton also bought his own table at the event, which cost upwards of $30,000, and invited four young designers, including Kenneth Nicholson. Following the event, Hamilton took to Twitter to shower his support to the American designer, Nicholson.

So incredibly honoured to have collaborated with American Designer Kenneth Nicholson on bringing this vision to life. Kenneth’s craftsmanship and point of view advances menswear in truly inspiring ways. It’s a dream,” he said.

It is a known fact that Hamilton has an immense interest in the fashion industry. Hence, amidst his growing love for the field, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if the Briton manages to carve his way into the fashion industry following his retirement from F1.
