Launching his eponymous line in 2005 (at the age of 18), Liberian-American unisex prodigy Telfar Clemens has developed with remarkable fidelity a brand and a design vocabulary which is uniquely democratic and strikingly original.

Laying the blueprint for today’s black avant-garde TELFAR was genderless a decade before the trend launching projects with a remarkably horizontal cultural impact: from collaborations with Solange Knowles at the Guggenheim Museum — to designing the nationwide uniforms for over 10,000 employees of the fast-food chain White Castle.

Original almost to a fault  — TELFAR is in the business of creating the new — a business that has from time to time been called fashion.

After winning the 2017 Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund, TELFAR seeks to carve out his place in America’s Fashion future.
