Telfar is a black-owned, gender-less fashion project established in 2005 in NYC by Telfar Clemens. Clemens, a Liberian American hailing from Queens, is a fashion prodigy & international celebrity. He creates high-quality work and always embraces the opportunity to speak up for social injustices. He’s made quite the name for himself over the past few years with his ever-creative runway shows. From a throwing party in White Castle to roll out their collaboration, to crowd-surfing in Irving Plaza, he has a strong eye for flair.
Clemens has carved out a niche in creating everyday sportswear with a quirky twist. Often hybridizing his pieces, he combines elements from an array of influences in a way that makes his pieces stylish and most importantly, comfortable.
Telfar has one of the more successful lines of bags in the market right now. The “Telfar Shopping Bag” nicknamed the “Bushwick Burkin,” essentially sells out every time they’re released on his site. Shop the collection here, and stay tuned for more Telfar releases at Wish ATL.
