Kerby Jean-Raymond

Inherent in Kerby Jean-Raymond’s work for Pyer Moss, the fashion label he founded in 2013, is a dedication to centering the black American experience. That vision can be seen in all aspects of the brand—from a shirt emblazoned with the names of unarmed victims of police brutality to a joyous runway show hosted in Brooklyn’s historic Weeksville neighborhood, one of America’s first free black communities. Pyer Moss is now a go-to brand for figures such as Michelle Obama and Colin Kaepernick, and in 2018, Jean-Raymond won the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award. —Cady Lang
