The Bomb Life: Pyer Moss’ Marshall “Major” Taylor Inspired Collection for Hennessy in a Balmain Denim Blazer and Tom Ford

Pyer Moss is a designer who disrupts. Since he stepped on the scene, he has used his clothing as a platform to increase awareness of black history and current events (He created a Juneteenth shirt, which Usher wore to perform at Essence Music Festival, and famously made a tee decorated with names of black men killed by police brutality).

So earlier this week, I was tapped by the producers of Centric TV’s the Round to tell my story on how I Broke into the Fashion industry. Breaking in wasn’t easy!

As I approached departures, I got a call from…
