Even now, as New York Style Week is an almost all-digital affair, HFR gave us melanated magic with its “Black Is The New Black” presentation this previous Sunday (September 13).
The digital fête kicked off New York Style Week, honoring 4 of Black style’s most impactful contributors and featured must-have collections from three Black designers.
Among the many honorees had been British VOGUE Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful, who acquired the Maverick award and Teen VOGUE Editor-in-Chief Lindsey Peoples Wagner, who was named Editor of Tthe 12 months. Kerby Jean- Raymond, founding father of menswear label Pyer Moss, was named Designer of the 12 months and Nate Hinton was launched by style (and curl) icon Tracee Ellis Ross for the Publicist of the 12 months award.
In fact, the featured designers didn’t disappoint. Kimberly Goldson’s style assortment together with her sister was a celebration of Black hair paired with their signature mash-up of prints and textures. RichFresh pulled up with a suited assortment of tracksuits and pantsuits, and Kristian Lorén gave us color-block objectives with sequins and separates in ‘70s-meets-’90s aesthetic.
Along with giving us style life, Brandice introduced that the entire collections may even be become a kids’s line through a groundbreaking partnership with Janie & Jack.
When you weren’t in a position to tune in Sunday, no worries. You’ll be able to catch a replay of the total presentation on Saturday, September 19 at 7pm EST on Runway 360.
