Something Extra | Thursday
This time, the weather gods were smiling on Kerby Jean-Raymond and his label, Pyer Moss. So, too, were the fashion gods. Two days after torrential rains and lightning sent guests fleeing for cover and forced Jean-Raymond to postpone unveiling his hotly awaited first couture collection, the sun came out on Saturday and the crowds came back. They were rewarded with a hugely imaginative, visually audacious show that blurred the lines between fashion and art as it paid tribute to the ingenuity of black inventors often overlooked by history. SAINT International’s Tami Williams walked the runway in a refrigerator with colourful letter magnets spelling out the phrase, ‘But who invented Black trauma?’ Something Extra brings you the highlights.
