VERGE: Queer New York Fashion Week Event

On Thursday, the Brooklyn Museum will play host to Verge, the largest queer New York Fashion Week event and runway show

Verge is a singular fashion event, one that is not to be missed. Proudly presented by dapperQ, bklyn boihood, Posture Magazine and D.Y.D.H. Productions, this event and runway show will take place on the final day of New York Fashion Week and showcase some of New York’s most promising up-and-coming designers.

Starting at 6:00pm, guests are invited to attend and participate in the multiple events and exhibits that will be taking place prior to the runway show, including a queer fashion panel discussion, haiku empowerment station, style how-to presentations, open discussion boards and more. The museum’s regular galleries will also be open to the public starting as early as 11:00am.

The queer fashion show itself will begin at 7:30pm in the Beaux-Arts Court, and will feature some of the biggest names in queer fashion as both designers and models. The eight designers will be presenting eight never-before-seen collections, with over 70 models walking and close to 1,200 people expected to attend. DJ M.O. will be providing the runway beats while Tiq Milan will be taking care of the MC’ing. Verge’s eight designers each create work that is systematically rooted in notions of gender nonconformity and its intersections with race, ethnicity and culture. The eight designers are; Fabio Costa of NotEqual, Karen Quirion of KQK, Sun Sun, Jag & Co, Sandra Gagalo, LACTIC, Fony and MARKANTOINE. Each designer and collection brings a unique take on what it means to be queer and on the cutting edge of fashion, and this show promises to truly be revolutionary.
