A new exhibition is in town — and this time, it’s one you can wear. 

Tied to the “King Pleasure” exhibit currently on display in New York City, Black Fashion Fair partnered with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s estate for a show-slash-collaboration that’s not only open for viewing, but also for shopping. In honor of the celebration of the late artist’s work, his sisters Lisane Basquiat and Jeanine Heriveaux commissioned nine Black-owned brands — Hanifa, Theophilio, Brandon Blackwood, Who Decides War, Johnny Nelson, Bed on Water, Homage Year, Head of State, and Advisry — to create pieces based on his body of work.
