GRACE WALES BONNER’S ‘NOT IN PARIS FASHION’ EXHIBIT

 

London-born fashion designer Grace Wales Bonner’s Jamaican roots were on full-display during Highsnobiety’s ‘Not In Paris’ exhibit. The show took place during what would have been Paris’ Men’s Fashion Week, and celebrated creativity in the age of remote interactions.

Featuring pieces from Wales Bonner’s award-winning eponymous fashion house, the collection represented '70s Jamaican-English culture influences in art, photography, and fashion.’ Her work was shown alongside heavyweights, Fendi, Dior and Hermés.

“The collection really felt like a reflection of my family and I wanted my community to see themselves in it,” said Bonner. 

Jamaican and Saint International model, Romaine Dixon, also walked in the same show having previously appeared in her Autumn/Winter 2020 campaign.
