" SHOWS "
leilah weinraub, ceo and creative director of hood by air, the new york-based fashion collective known for luxury ready-to-wear. weinraub helped to radicalize fashion by championing what she calls “modern people”: the rising class of consumers who subvert traditional markers of race, class, and gender and revel in freedom, lawlessness, and spectacle. as a filmmaker, weinraub has helped document such unacknowledged tastemakers, particularly those belonging to queer, autonomous communities of color whose creative output is often plundered by mass culture but whose stories are rarely told on their own terms.
Shows and performances are essential to the ethos of the label. LAWLESSNESS AND FREEDOM.
