Telfar Clemens founded his eponymous brand in 2005. Born in Queens, New York, he spent part of his childhood in Liberia, before moving to the US with his parents. He began designing and making his own clothes while still in high school because he couldn’t find what he was looking for in stores.
In 2003, the designer began creating his own collection of deconstructed and reconstructed garments which he sold in New York City at the Lower East Side and Soho boutiques, before launching his own 100 percent unisex fashion label, Telfar, in 2005, showing in downtown galleries and clubs. In 2017, he won the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund award, and his clothes are now sold internationally at stores like Galleries Lafayette in Paris and Dover Street Market in London.
Telfar’s AW20 collection shown in Florence was presented with creative director Babak Radboy and was in partnership with Slam Jam. Checkout my Favorites off course !
