Travis Barker closed out the first week of New York Fashion Week with a surprise drum solo on an outdoor aluminum runway in the rain. It all went down at Tommy Hilgifer's "See Now, Buy Now" Fall 2022 collection. The set was called the Tommy Factory and was inspired by Andy Warhol's New York City studio, where the designer actually met Warhol.
At the end of the show, a model pulled Barker from his front row seat and brought him on stage. After taking off his shirt he went up to a drum set to play while the models did one final celebratory lap followed by Hilfiger.
Barker's set made an already momentous occasion even more special as this was Hilgier's first time at NYFW after a three-year hiatus. "This season is all about the collision of my favorite archival inspirations with new live event concepts and virtual worlds. It’s the perfect expression of what we stand for as we pay homage to our roots with a return to NYFW," he explained.

On a personal front, Barker's wife Kourtney Kardashian revealed that the two have recently put a pause on their IVF journey. "We started an IVF journey, but I stopped. It was a lot. I took a break to just focus on our wedding and getting married," she told WSJ. Magazine. Kourtney also opened up about whether or not their wedding will be featured on season two of The Kardashians which premieres on Hulu on September 22nd. "We don't know yet," she replied. "I have hours and hours and hours of footage. I don't know if we're going to keep it for home video or share it with the world."
