Gogo Graham is at the cutting edge of the New York fashion scene’s new vanguard. The interdisciplinary artist founded her boundary-pushing eponymous brand in 2014 after shifting her focus from studying biology at the University of Texas at Austin to textiles and apparel. Since then, Graham has reflected the world around her through unique storytelling and fabrication processes that, according to Graham, “give new life to forgotten, discarded, and recycled materials” while marrying fantasy with the familiar. For her runway show this past September, models sauntered down a dimly lit Bushwick runway, simultaneously exposed and obscured. Accessorized with sheer hooded masks, Graham’s looks were daring, delicate, and deconstructed: skin-tight miniskirts with raw edges, lacey layers of silk and jersey, and prairiecore dresses slashed and shredded.
