Designer Andre Moses and the latest collection from his line Arc of Andre took over the runway to host the second showing of the day at the 2021 ESSENCE Fashion House.
Opening the show outfitted in a bright red ensemble before later shifting to a black and white look, Moses and his collection brought both fashion and intention to the floor. “What’s next for me is to just keep going,” he told ESSENCE following the show. “And to keep making collections that have something to say.”
As elegant as the designs were, the collection also communicated emotionally, sending a powerful message by shedding light on the mortality rates of Black women during pregnancy through tailoring details. Aesthetic aside, Moses made it clear that it’s his goal to continue to create collections that speak loud in clear—in more ways than one.
