On Sunday, Moshood celebrated his place as a mainstay in the neighborhood with his 23rd annual fashion show
When you wear Moshood, you wear yourself.
For 23 years, that has been the motto for Moshood Creations, a clothing line developed by Nigeria native Moshood. More than two decades in, and the retail clothing line has become a veritable icon on Fulton Street where the store has stood– in many ways one of the only surviving vestiges of “Old Brooklyn,” pre-gentrification.
On Sunday, Moshood further gilded and celebrated his place as a mainstay in the neighborhood with his annual fashion show he boldly holds on the sidewalk right outside the store.
Loyal patrons and passersby stopped to marvel at the simplicity and splendor of his designs, along with the stunning models that donned them.
The proceeding was enough to stop traffic, figuratively and literally.
