Indie music and fashion collaborations are becoming VERY on-trend.

Earlier this year some young rap chick named Azealia Banks was said to be performing at the Chanel afterparty during Paris Fashion Week. Most people’s reactions were who? And what? And since when does Karl Lagerfeld like rap? Well, thanks to that Chanel gig, Azealia Banks is THE new fashion muse and has struck up a unique collaboration with Alexander Wang.

After walking arm-and-arm with Alexander to the Met Ball earlier this year the rapstress is now the new face of T by Alexander Wang.

In this new video for the brand, Azealia is featured in a mostly black-and-white video rapping her new song “Van Vogue” from recently released EP “1991.”

In the video she’s rapping and wearing T by Alexander Wang garb. She's rocking a crop top, a "members only" type jacket and a cute bustier top, and another long sleeved mini dress.

This isn’t the first time that Alexander has cast an indie IT hip hop star like Azealia. He's previously worked with Santigold and Die Antwoord.

As for Azealia's music career, she has yet to sign to a label but just dropped her newest mixtape “Fantasea” which she released to the internet for free.

She’s also got a spot in Elle’s Women in Music issue and her latest music video for “Liquorice” was styled by Lady Gaga’s right hand man, Nicola Formichetti.

Will we see more from this fabulous fashion music star? Perhaps a Vogue cover in her future? Tweet us your thoughts @Modamob.
