Few designers experience the same kind of full-circle story that the creative behind gender nonconforming streetwear line TELFAR, Telfar Clemens, has. Growing up in Queens, the now CFDA Fashion Fund finalist never expected to be designing the new and improved White Castle uniform and throwing a party to celebrate his efforts in his own city.

On Sunday, Oct, 15, TELFAR celebrated the launch of their commissioned unisex uniform for the massive American fast food chain with an all-out, trendy bash featuring DJ sets from artists like Venus X, Total Freedom, Joseph Labeija, and even a duo performance from Dev Hynes (also known as Blood Orange) and R&B musician Ian Isiah, as well as a surprise performance by rap icon Cam’ron.

Though thousands of fashion fans originally planned to attend the event at a Queens White Castle location to pay homage to the designer's origin and current residence, the festivities were unfortunately shut down by the New York Police Department before they even began - luckily rescheduling last minute to Brooklyn's The Well where the fashion forward event commenced.

Along with over 10,000 White Castle team members sporting the new TELFAR look, the designer has also released a capsule collection inspired by the collaboration featuring sweatshirts, t-shirts, and hats featuring dual prints and the White Castle logo. All proceeds from the capsule collection are set to benefit the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights - Liberty and Justice fund to help minors seeking bail to leave Rikers Island.
