Falling in Love

Nevertheless, it seems as though the fashion world is becoming more appreciative of pragmatic solutions in its old age, and Crocs may now be this Spring’s must-have shoe. While many designers tried to make Crocs cool again in 2017, their efforts fell pretty flat, and the trend didn’t quite take off. However, it now seems as though celebrities are also jumping on the bandwagon, and more and more people are understanding that they can be pretty epic if you know how to style them. Everyone from Ariana Grande to Pharrell has rocked these shoes, so why don’t you give them a try?

We know that everyone has their own thoughts when it comes to Crocs, but you might be surprised. Besides, everyone will be wearing them this season, so you might want to jump on the bandwagon before they all sell out. It could happen, you know.

Pyer Moss Presents Debut Couture Collection in Alternative Fashion Show

Alternative fashion designer Kerby-Jean Raymond has recently made a position in history as the first-ever black American fashion designer taking part in a prestigious couture show. Raymond was a guest designer in the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, where he presented his debut couture collection under his Pyer Moss label.

The Location

Unlike most of the designers presenting their collections in Paris, Villa Lewardo in Irvington, New York, was the venue of the original show. The location is culturally significant as the estate belongs to none other than Madam C.J. Walker. After earning her fortune with a line of Black hair care products, she was documented by the Guinness Book of World records as the first female self-made millionaire entrepreneur in America. Though dated on July 8, the show had to postpone because of severe weather caused by the recent hurricane named Elsa.

The Show

The show was attended by famous personalities, who gathered again at the same venue even after the date disruption. Among the invitees, there were Hanifa designer Anifa Mvuemba, the 15 Percent Pledge founder and creative director of Brother Vellies Aurora James, actress Kiki Layne and many other famed figures. Writer, singer, prison activist, and former Black Panther chairwoman Elaine Brown opened the show addressing the audience. After the opening address, the ramp walk was started accompanied by a 22GZ live performance along with a live orchestra.

The Collection

The distinctively unique collection by Pyer Moss was unconventionally named ‘WAT U IZ’. Delivering a tribute to Black inventions, the attires were eccentrically designed using 25 surrealist and fashionable interpretations of various items like hot rollers, chessboard, even the refrigerator, on which, the sentence “BUT WHO INVENTED BLACK TRAUMA?” was written with magnetic letters.
