 Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 5486

Kerby Jean-Raymond is the Founder of Pyer Moss and Artistic Director of Reebok Studies. Merging luxe and streetwear, Pyer Moss is the mens-and womenswear label changing the fashion industry by storm. Since 2013, Pyer Moss has had an impenetrable force gaining favor from notable celebrities, winning the CFDA Fashion Fund Prize, being named Forbes 30 under 30 and Times Next 100 List and much more. Despite his wild success, Kerby admits that his journey was riddled with failed investor relationships, battles of negotiating power, difficulties finding proper factories and more. Through it all what remained constant was his fervent passion for good design and a natural eye.  In recent years, Pyer Moss has caught widespread attention in its politically active runway shows and seasonal campaigns portraying overlooked minority groups in America. In this episode the designer stresses that the "fashion formula" never worked for him, but harnessing the energy of “politics, societal conventions and music”—all things that made his life, was what found him to feel personal freedom.  In this episode, he tells it all from his early days as a kid all the way to showing his Pyer Moss Collection III at the King's Theatre in his hometown of Flatbush, Brooklyn.  As always, thank you for tuning into HYPEBEAST Radio and Business of HYPE.
