Last year, he joined Swedish House Mafia on their Paradise Again tour. After joining ZHU backstage for this feature, VMAN noted, “ZHU has curated a slick persona with a massive influence far beyond his music, specifically in the fashion space.”  HYPEBEAST said, “ZHU consistently delivers stunning audio-visual experiences drawing from a broad range of influences, with high fashion and rave being recurring themes.”

He previewed his NIGHTDAY fashion line, designed in collaboration with Emmy Slattery, during his EDC Las Vegas set last year. The name for the collection, which will soon be available at select retailers, was inspired by ZHU’s massively successful debut EP, which included the GRAMMY-nominated hit “Faded.” Billboard noted, “It’s an accomplishment for an artist to partner with a swanky fashion house, yet a next-level achievement is unlocked by designing a collection oneself, from inspiration to garment.”
