Pratt Students Help Honor Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond at Annual Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Pratt showcased the work of 17 designers Thursday night at Spring Studios, and honored Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award.
In an interview Friday, Moss said he hoped students would remember that “the process is supposed to be long and intense, and if they stay the course they will eventually reach the goal and the purpose that was assigned to them by the universe. As artists, we go through the ebbs and flows and sometimes we don’t survive them. I just want them to know that at some point it does get better.”
Jean-Raymond received the award from his mentor Dapper Dan, who can appreciate that sentiment. Over the past four years, the two men have had many conversations and “Sunday talks,” Jean-Raymond said, adding that Dan has always been someone who he could count on pre-Gucci. “We navigated through different fashion industries, but at the end, we ended up in the same place,” Jean-Raymond said.
In addition to researching his next collection for his show in September, the designer said he is working on a signature shoe for Reebok. With his contract with Reebok scheduled to run out this year, the designer said he is

Pyer Moss And Other Luxury Black-Owned Labels Disrupting the World of Fashion

Several high-end fashion brands from Gucci to Prada to Burberry are under fire for selling racially-insensitive products that resemble blackface. Critics say this points to the need for more diversity in the fashion industry and larger support of black-owned fashion designers and the #buyblack movement at large. Investing and supporting brands made by people of color is one way to ensure that designs are culturally appropriate and may help to eliminate racism and racist imagery in fashion.

Here are four black-owned fashion labels disrupting the fashion industry and using their products to make an impact.

Pyer Moss

Kerby Jean-Raymond, the founder of the menswear label Pyer Moss, is one of the most talked about designers in fashion. He’s dressed Hollywood darlings like Tracee Ellis Ross and Issa Rae and won the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award in 2018, along with a $ 400,000 prize. However, his fashion career almost came to a halt in 2015 after he debuted the Pyer Moss spring/summer 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week. His provocative runway presentation incorporated real footage of police violence against African Americans, including the final minutes before Eric Garner was choked to death by police and a black person being run down by a police car.

“We were the first to bring Black Lives Matter to the runway,” Jean-Raymond told BLACK ENTERPRISE. “That was probably one of the most viral moments in fashion history.” At the time, “the plight of [being] black wasn’t being discussed, but the black body was being used to continue to promote luxury items. So, for us, it was a way to wake them up.”

Although many applauded the New York-born designer for taking a stance against police brutality, the controversial showcase nearly destroyed his company. “It cost me a lot. By doing that, I lost a lot of business,” he said. He lost partnerships and investors and wasn’t able to fully recover until 2017 when he was offered a deal to work with Rebook. Despite feeling like a “martyr,” today Jean-Raymond says he’s thankful that his brand helped pave the way for conscious fashion. “We’re grateful to be one of the leaders of that change.”

Last year, Jean-Raymond teamed up with Hennessy to create a capsule apparel line that honors the legacy of pro cyclist Marshall “Major” Taylor, one of the first African American international sports champions. The unsung athlete set multiple world racing records in the 1890s while overcoming racial bias. “He’s one of those world champion athletes like Jack Johnson who’s largely been omitted from the history book,” said Jean-Raymond.

 


Life On Autopilot

Christopher Tuning and Talib Graves-Mann launched Life On Autopilot (LOA) in 2016 after becoming frustrated with the lack of stylish solutions to protect their baseball caps while traveling. As a solution, they created a luxury luggage brand company that combines style with innovation and is designed specifically for trendsetters and tastemakers.

Their first product, the SkyCap, is a luxury cap carrier with an internal storage compartment. The premium leather carrier holds six baseball caps, while the interior is lined in suede and includes a zipper compartment, an underbelly zip pocket, and a custom snap hook. Tuning says the design was influenced by hip-hop, sports, and black culture.

In addition, LOA offers luggage items and travel accessories, like their First Class Backpack, which comes with a shoe compartment, two front zip pockets, and multiple interior pockets.

“I started off with very few resources and capital, says Tuning, who also serves as the brand’s CEO, in a statement. “I’ve found beauty in the struggle driven by a force of passion and perseverance that comes from knowing my ancestors didn’t have the opportunities I have today.”

According to Graves-Mann, shoppers frustrated with the lack of diversity in fashion should support companies like LOA, which are inspired and intended for the culture.

“It is important for our community to seek out and invest in luggage designers that reflect our community,” he told BE in an email. “Our products are of equal—if not higher quality—than many of the luxury brands in the marketplace. Each of our products are hand-made and also culture-made.”

Stevie Boi has been disrupting the fashion world with his unique eyewear collections since he was thrust into the industry at the age of 19. His ornate eyewear, SBShades, have been flaunted by Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna. Like his sunglasses, Boi, himself, is known for his fierce and bold style as well as his androgynous looks. Meanwhile, in addition to being edgy and daring, his runway shows are known for being a platform that promotes diversity and being inclusive. “If you look at the people who’ve walked for me in all of my shows from the get-go, [they’re] all different sizes, colors, ethnicities, etc.,” he told BE minutes before his fall/winter 2019 collection made its debut at New York Fashion Week. “I include everybody.” Some of the models included transgender model Shauna Brooks, Love and Hip Hop: New York’s Bianca Bonnie, and TV personality Jose Ayala.

Despite his 10-year success in fashion, Boi says that SBshades grew in demand and in popularity years before it actually became lucrative. “The challenges started off when I was younger,” he admits. “I didn’t know what I was doing. I had a lot of people utilize my products and wear them on billboards and album covers…but I didn’t know how to turn it into income. So I went a good five years without making any income. I had a government job to support my business and that’s how I was able to stay afloat.”

New York native McKenzie Liautaud is a former model-turned-jewelry designer who creates timeless pieces with a purpose. Inspired by his Haitian roots and love of healing crystals, Liautaud’s upcoming Spring 2019 Collection, Voodoo, is dispelling the myths and stereotypes around the religion, which is largely practiced in Caribbean islands and parts of Africa. Liautaud believes in the magic of Voodoo and the power of precious gemstones such as rock crystals, pyrite, rose quartz, labradorite, and jade to attract love, luck, and prosperity.

His signature collections utilize delicate 14 karat cable chains, lustrous natural freshwater pearls mixed with assorted gems, and his signature star symbol. McKenzie Liautaud Jewelry has been flaunted by celebrities like Eva Longoria, Rosario Dawson, Shakira, and Will.I.AM. In addition to sending positive vibes, 10% of sales benefit New Story, a nonprofit charity dedicated to building sustainable homes for disaster victims around the world. He aims to raise $ 39,000 to help build six homes in Haiti. “I do this in honor of my parents who emigrated from Port-au-Prince to New York and raised six children in a happy, healthy, and safe home,” he said in a statement.

EMPLOYMENT SEARCH UPDATE:

Kate Moss, Lily Allen Attend Dior Men Show

LOCATION LOCATION: Lily Allen was in mock casting-agent mode arriving at the Dior Men show on Friday, with her tell-all, best-selling memoir, “My Thoughts Exactly,” set to be made into a film or TV series.
Sporting a silver leopard-print anorak accessorized with a diamond cannabis-shaped necklace she picked up at Icebox in Atlanta, Allen, who is also working on a second book, her fifth album and two musicals, had inadvertently matched her black lipstick to the color of the venue, a sprawling ephemeral structure set on the Champ-de-Mars opposite the École Militaire, with the Eiffel Tower looming in the near distance.
When asked who should play her, the singer, who said the format for the adaptation has not yet been decided, shrugged, surveyed the space, and jokingly pointed to the nearest fellow front-rower: Christina Ricci.
An unassuming Ricci, a friend of Dior Men creative director Kim Jones who had flown from Los Angeles to support his sophomore outing for the house, was taking in the space. “It’s very impressive to see this big Brutalist tent set against the beauty and elegance of Paris,” she said.
Other high-profile guests attending the event included Kate Moss, joined by her beau Count Nikolai von Bismarck; Robert Pattinson and Naomi Campbell.
