Following in the footsteps of past recipients like Thom Browne and Diane von Furstenberg, Pyer Moss‘ Kerby Jean-Raymond is the latest designer to receive the Pratt Institute’s Fashion Visionary Award. Having already scooped 2018’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, the Pratt prize is only a further acknowledgement of Jean-Raymond’s impressive design acumen.

With recent collaborations running the gamut from Reebok to Future to Hennessy, Jean-Raymond has proven himself as a well-rounded talent, deserving of the Pratt Institute’s nod.

“It is an honor to receive this award from such a prestigious fashion institute such as Pratt,” said Jean-Raymond in a statement. “My team and I strive to create designs that challenge social narratives and evoke dialogue. This award proves that we are on the right path and encourages us to continue using our platform to tell stories through our clothing.”

Dapper Dan will present Jean-Raymond with the award on May 9 when the Pratt Institute hosts its latest round of student runway presentations at New York’s Spring Studios. The 120th edition of the school’s event is dubbed “LOCAL” and will highlight a selection of work from the school’s graduating senior students.

Most recently, Pyer Moss was nominated for 2019’s CFDA Awards Menswear Designer of the Year.
