dapperQ to Host 5th Annual Queer New York Fashion Week Show at Brooklyn Museum Sponsored by INTO

dapperQ is proud to present our fifth annual New York Fashion Week queer style show, the largest fashion event celebrating LGBTQ bodies and fashion during NYFW sponsored by INTO. (*Feature image by Hannah Cohen.)


This year’s show “Dress Code” examines clothing as a coded language and one of the first visible markers of our identities, inviting you to consider the way garments uphold or challenge rigid stereotypes. With 10 queer, QPOC, QTPOC, QWOC, and queer-women owned designers, our show boasts the most diverse lineup of queer designers during NYFW.
