Now more than ever, fashion collections are reflections on history or the current situations of society. Black designers, in particular, a rising popularity in the industry that’s only recently getting the recognition they deserve, are using their runway platforms to share their gifted passion. One of the latest to do so is Pyer Moss, whose Spring 2019 collection was a colorful history lesson of African-American culture. He even set the show in Bushwick, a village in Brooklyn, New York that’s known to be one of the first dominantly Black areas in the country. On the runway, he put forth how the Black community created rock’n’roll and hip-hop culture, both which are known for their elaborate silhouettes and electric colors. Both were on full display this season, whether on oversized pieces with graphic prints or tailored suits and separates in the most vivid of hues. It’s clear from this collection that the African-American community has a rich history to share, and none did it quite as beautifully as Pyer Moss.
