Telfar who considers himself a unisex designer continues to refine and expand his core practice of taking what is most utterly normal in American style — and double down on it: deconstructing its form, reimagining its function, and projecting it into the future.

The result, a collection that is not for the faint of heart; it is a collection meant for someone who likes to try new things and new silhouettes.

Notable attendees included: Rose McGowan (Actress, Producer/Director), MeLo-X (Recording Artist), Mayer Hawthorne (Recording Artist), Tokyo Stylez (Wig Maker), Rich the Kid (Recording Artist), Dev Hynes (Recording Artist), Jonte (Recording Artist).
