Weeksville, Brooklyn, was one of the first communities of free black people before the abolition of slavery, and it's also where Pyer Moss's Spring collection showed. Complete with a gospel choir, the show had clothes just as politically-charged as its choice of venue, bringing identity to the forefront of his work. "SEE US NOW?" reads the embroidering on a cummerbund; "STOP CALLING 911 ON THE CULTURE," says the lettering on the left breast of a tee. And while the trek across the bridge mid-NYFW isn't easy, it was well worth the journey.
