Finally, the winners of the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund 2018 were announced in New York to promote the most talented young American designers, and Label Pyer Moss becomes the prize.
Pyer Moss was announced as the winner of the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund 2018 at a dinner and a fashion show at Navy Yard in Brooklyn.
The actress Emily Blunt presented the Award to the designer behind the label, Kerby Jean-Raymond. His collections have been praised for honoring African American culture in America, and have made it to US Vogue’s Best Spring Collection 2019 collection. Jean-Raymond will receive $ 400,000 in prize money.
Kerby Jean-Raymond’s “timely social experiment“ has gained recognition all over the world. The Haitian-American Designer uses his fashion to challenge the world’s perception of unapologetic blackness, and he is not afraid to be controversial.
Jean-Raymond’s most recent collaboration with Reebok is a worth to dig collection, and it covers as well boldness of extravaganza and easiness of streetwear. A Pyer Moss piece is mostly made in limited quantities, which explains why the Label Pyer Moss is slowly becoming an empire.
Not only the Internet and the press are thrilled with Pyer Moss, but also celebrities like Erykah Badu, Gigi Hadid, and even Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon are huge fans of the label.
