Kid Cudi delivered her bridal energy at the 2021 CFDA Awards.

The rapper looked set to walk down the aisle in a lace ensemble designed entirely by CFDA Emerging American Designer of the Year nominee Eli Russell Linnetz for Wednesday’s fashion party.

“I just sent her out of the blue a text from a wedding dress and I was like, ‘Will you be my fiancée? “” Linnetz, who designs for his label ERL, told PEOPLE exclusively.

Cudi’s wedding-inspired look featured a lace catsuit worn under a matching maxi skirt and a sleek white blazer. Instead of heels, he opted for embellished white sneakers to add a bit of edge. Of course, the set wouldn’t be complete without a statement veil.

“I trust this man, so I was there to take him wherever he thought,” Cudi told PEOPLE.

He accessorized the look with a meaningful pendant necklace. “It’s the Black Jesus – deep, dark chocolate brown,” Cudi adds.

Cudi walked the red carpet at the CFDA Awards with Linnetz, who is one of five up-and-coming designers recognized for their already impressive fashion achievements.

Linnetz from Venice Beach really did it all. Throughout her career, Linnetz directed music videos for Kanye West, co-produced an album for Kid Cudi, wrote songs for Teyana Taylor, designed scenes for Lady Gaga, and built her surf-inspired ERL label.

When the fashion designer discovered his CFDA honor, he was just dressing A $ AP Rocky for the Met Gala. (The rapper wore Linnetz’s multi-colored quilt designer on the red carpet.)

“It was an overwhelming moment of ecstasy. I only really dealt with it later that night. I’m not one to celebrate,” Linnetz said. “The next day I started to design what I was going to wear for the CFDA awards.”
