2016 Queer Fashion Week

Recently, I was invited to attend DapperQ’s iD NYFW show at the Brooklyn Museum. I was super excited to get the invite, but bummed because I couldn’t make it. Lucky for you, and for me the shows producers Anita Dolce Vita, Deeba Zivari and Colette Lee Morales had the event beautifully photographed by Hannah Cohen. The show featured independent designers exploring gender diversity and fashion as a means of visual activism to create positive sociopolitical change.
