TELFAR 2020 - WATCH 1 & 2

“It was a show that felt open and pushed at what a fashion show can be. Importantly, it used this openness and expansiveness to contrast against the restrictive and conservative nature of much of modern America. As the models walked out, a voiceover from a projected film -- directed by Clayton Vomero --talked about immigration, while showing large expanses of water to represent the Telfar team travelling to Paris. It exploded into joyful song courtesy of Steve Lacy, and featured moving monologues from Ashton Sanders and Jeremy O Harris that touched on Whitman and Shakespeare.” - ID Magazine


“Clayton Vomero, with the curiosity of an entomologist, examines the post-Soviet cultural space formed in the era of consumption, neo-feudalism, simulacra and endless chaos. A grandmother sings the advertising jingle of Coca-Cola under her breath, the representatives of the Bonchinche voguehouse eat McDonalds, the rapper / philosopher Husky, locked in a car, talks about culture, the monumental Artemy Troitsky recalls his youth, a dealer sells fake sneakers, and girls from Vladimir go live. Russian and Ukrainian young people testify to how the empire collapsed and how culture surrendered to consumerism without a fight. Strange as it may seem, the main musical hero is Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.”
- Kommersant


“Throughout Pai Nosso (“Our Father”), an emotive short documentary directed by Clayton Vomero, 23-year-old DJ and producer Firmeza grapples with questions of loneliness and faith. He says, unequivocally, he is not religious; but he laughs off the idea that heaven doesn’t exist. For him the truth is something unknowable, something in between.  Simmering beneath these domestic scenes, darkly omnipresent, are two intertwined things: the tight, dense percussion of Firmeza’s music, and the subject of his father, who passed away in 2015.” - FADER
