Winner of the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund – TELFAR has defied every norm, boundary and assumption about fashion since he began his unisex line as a teenager in 2005. From collaborating with Solange Knowles in her performance An Ode To, at the Guggenheim Museum, to designing the uniform for all 10,000 employees of the fast food chain White Castle, to a capsule collection named after his Queens apartment block LEFRAK City to raise money to pay bail for minors held on Rikers island; TELFAR represents a starkly original, radically democratic and thoroughly horizontal vision of fashion future.
