Brooklyn Stepped Up At New York Fashion Week SS23

"Twelve shows to know about from NYFW's Spring/Summer ‘23 season, where the borough was dressed to impress

"It’s dark, it’s deep, it’s modern. Born in Jamaica and now based in Brooklyn, Tyrone Smith a.k.a. Musty presented his avante garde collection “The Trilogy” in the financial district on Sep. 12 Smith takes pride in creating all of his pieces in his Brooklyn apartment. The collection included oversized balloon pants, giant shoulders, and simple, yet chic tops and outerwear.

"“The Trilogy” speaks to who Smith is becoming as a designer. His unique designs represent “political plus philosophical commentary about his interaction with the world, applying historical implications to each of his collections while offering inferences of what the future of fashion will look like.” Smith, a Massachusetts College of Arts and Design graduate, says his goal with Musty is to challenge the perception of design and couture."
