Created by Rachelle Mendez, David Collins, Rob Eric, and Michael Williams, HBO Max’s ‘The Hype’ is a popular fashion reality series. It provides various streetwear designers the opportunity to show some of the biggest names in the industry what they are capable of. Through different challenges, the designers are able to accumulate several skills and victories, all in order to secure a co-sign from the three judges as the winner and a cash prize worth $150,000.
The recently released season 2 of the show introduced viewers to Brittney “Knoxx” Brooks and Khahn Ngo. The two designers were always ready to embrace the difficulties presented to them and quickly made a name for themselves. As expected, both of them have garnered many fans who are eager to know more about these two participants, especially their present whereabouts. Luckily, here is everything we know about the same!
Brittney “Knoxx” Brooks and Khahn Ngo’s The Hype Journey
Brittney “Knoxx” Brooks and Khahn Ngo were among the nine designers who secured a spot for themselves in the competitions thanks to their clothing racks, which were examined by the judges at the very start. Knoxx, the owner of DVMN NYC/DVMNPIGEON, shared that she hails from Elmira, New York. Similarly, Khahn Ngo, originally from Columbus, Ohio, talked about his brand N*G*O. From the very start, both of them kept impressing the judges and the guests with their unique styles, Though there were some ups and downs in the journey.
However, any setbacks that the duo faced seemed to make the designers even stronger. In fact, Khahn won his first challenge right after being in the bottom three after the second task in the show. For the third challenge, the participants were asked to create some clothing for some of the most renowned skaters in the world. Keeping his muse, Ish Cepeda, in mind, Khahn created a look that was both stylish and comfortable and earned the victory for the week.
In the very next task, the designers had to create a look to represent their community and their roots. The guests for the week were none other than Blacc Sam and BH, the brains behind Marathon Clothing. For the second time in a row, Khahn won the competition and earned himself a collaboration with Marathon Clothing. The victory also gave him the advantage in the next task, where he got the honor of creating three teams of two, and Khahn decided to work with Knoxx as Team A. For the challenge, Khahn and Knoxx had to create a look for Offset’s daughter Kalea and have it match the singer’s pre-decided apparel. The duo showed their mettle and teamworking skills by winning the competition. This marked Khahn’s third victory in a row and Knoxx’s first victory ever.
In the season finale, both of them were pitted against each other to get the remaining spot in the top two. For this, they had to impress the judges by using their lookbooks. Unsure about which one to choose, the judges decided to give them both the chance to present their collection, along with Winston Bartholomew “Barth” Holder III. When the time came to decide the winners, the judges gave Barth the victory. Though Knoxx and Khahn were sad about not being able to win the competition, they both agreed that the overall experience was something they would cherish forever.
