DapperQ Presents iD: A Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow

DapperQ Presents iD: A Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow

I was invited as a VIP to attend DapperQ’s iD NYFW show at the Brooklyn Museum produced by Anita Dolce Vita, Deeba Zivari and Colette Lee Morales.

I was excited to be invited on behalf of Qwear because dapperQ is a brand that I respect, and its commitment to LGBTQ fashion is incomparable. It also didn’t hurt that I live 10 minutes away from the Brooklyn Museum. I’ll admit, I was very nervous about what I was going to wear. I didn't want to be too casual, too street, or too formal. It took me 2 days just to decide on my makeup alone. I ended up picking an all black jumpsuit and some tinted rimless shades that remind me of the early 2000’s. For makeup I went for a dramatic smokey eye and nude lip.

If I could describe the show in one word it would be MAGICAL. I was thoroughly impressed by the presentation, and execution of the whole event. As I sat front row I couldn't help but lose my cool when I saw people that I knew/admired pump on the runway. Major shout outs to Cakes Da Killa, Will Sheridan (On his super dope crutches), and Quing Devin Norelle! 

The lineup of designers were impeccable as well:

Angie Chuang
We Are Mortals by Anji Becker
Nik Kacy Footwear by NiK Kacy
Sharpe Suiting by Leon Wu
Sir New York by Auston Bjorkman
Stuzo Clothing by Stoney Michelli & Uzo Ejikeme
The Tailory by Shao Yang
Thomas Thomas by SJ Weston

My favorite lines were from Stuzo Clothing, We Are Mortals, & Sir New York. When the designers did their finale walk I screamed out loud “Just take all my monies!” I saw a piece of myself in all of those lines, something I usually don’t feel from other Fashion Week shows. 

The DapperQ iD show was a reminder that fashion really isn’t about gender, shape, or size. It is about the feeling it inspires. When something is able to make you feel, it is art. Being a Queer person of color, my existence is radical, my capacity to receive and give love is revolutionary, and my style of dressing is my art form! This show was the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and a clear indication of the direction the fashion industry is heading towards in the future.
