It has been a year since Pyer Moss invited Fashion Week to Weeksville, the historic black neighborhood in Brooklyn.

It is that time of the year: autumn. When the heat of summer slowly subsides and the fruits of our labor are heavy and ripe with maturity and succulent flavors awaiting the harvest.

But since no one is the boss of fashion week, just like no one’s the boss of an unruly 3-year old, designers kept showing and fashionistas kept trekking to see collections well into Sunday, the day “the people” decided would be the close of New York Fashion Week. Whether it was high profilers like Jacobs and Tom Ford or strivers like Hope Wade and Ikaikai’s Dominque Bones-Lark, de
This year, New York Fashion Week was announced as the most politically woke fashion week ever, and they did not fail to meet expectations.
From the political statements of Prabal Gurung on the runway to inclusivity in the show’s castings—most of it credited to Rihanna and her lingerie line Savage x Fenty—we can plainly see in 2019 where the seeds for change were planted in the fashion world.
With the taping of her lingerie fashion show for Amazon Prime, Rihanna made histor
