‘R/Evolution’ Spotlights Queer Designers of NYFW

· Updated on May 28, 2018

With Fashion Week underway in New York, influencers, artists and style savants descend upon New York. A vast lineup of runway shows and presentations brings some of the most iconic designers and innovative new talents to the spotlight.

This Thursday, New York Fashion Week’s largest queer fashion show will be held at the Brooklyn Museum for its fifth year. Entitled R/Evolution, this season’s show is curated by Anita Dolce Vita and dapperQ. Their mission of showcasingunderrepresented identities in fashion is particularly significant this year.

“Queer fashion is direct disobedience and a reclaiming of agency over our bodies,” Dolce Vita told Huffington Post. “It is a declaration of existence in spite of attempts at erasure. It is a celebration of our beauty in the face of constant messages declaring our unworthiness. It is our armor. It is our shine. It is our resilience.”

This year’s show features the designs of Audio Helkuik, Nicole Wilson, Bindle & Keep, Clio Sage, Kirrin Finch, Kris Harring, Sir New York, SDN Brooklyn, Stuzo, The Tailory New York and TomboyX + Clear Coated. The event kicks off with happy hour by Henrietta Hudson and mini popup shops, followed by the runway show with DJ M.O. R/Evolution takes place Thursday, 6-8 at the Brooklyn Museum. Tickets are available online.
