Fashion show or performance art piece? No, we’re not talking about Kanye’s Yeezy Season 2 spectacle, but a massive, multi-designer runway show that went down at Brooklyn Museum Thursday night. Throngs of people headed out to the museum’s ornate Beaux Arts Court for Verge: Queer NYFW.
Organized by DapperQ, Bklyn Boihood, DYDH Productions, and queer arts publication Posture magazine, the event was at least 45 solid minutes of fashion. dapperQ, a popular style site focused on masculine attire for gender non-conforming people, women, and trans-identified individuals, executive-produced Verge. The extensive showing brought out collections from eight designers: LACTIC, Not Equal by Fabio Costa, KQK by Karen Quirion, Fony, MARKANTOINE, SAGA by Sandra Gagalo, SunSun, and Jag & Co. all showed their wares at the event. Here are a few highlights.
