Kerby Jean-Raymond’s Next Pyer Moss Runway Show Will Take Place In September
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES — Kerby Jean-Raymond‘s Pyer Moss will present its next runway show this fall.
Jean-Raymond‘s, who is one of American fashion’s most vital voices, whose work has tackled issues of police brutality and the erasure of Black contributions to pop culture, will be returning to the runway in September.
Following a two-year hiatus, Kerby Jean-Raymond plans to show Pyer Moss Collection 4 the second weekend of September. The exact date will be revealed this summer. It will be the first time he’s had a show since September 2019, when he presented Collection 3, the third in his “American, Also” series paying tribute to Sister Rosetta Tharpe and other Black music pioneers with a musical performance and runway show at Kings Theatre in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
Vice President Kamala Harris wore a camel coat designed by Jean-Raymond at a coronavirus memorial service during inauguration weekend, which was a showcase for American designers.
Pyer Moss was founded in 2013 by Jean-Raymond, who has used the medium of fashion to stir debate and promote social activism. Breaking with the seasonal schedule, the collection is produced and sold in limited editions. In 2018, Pyer Moss launched its first collection with Reebok and in 2020, Jean-Raymond became Global Creative Director for the brand (see it here).
Also in 2020, Jean-Raymond and French luxury group Kering partnered on Your Friends in New York, a venture to empower and fund a new generation of creatives in all fields.
