NO SESSO by Pierre Davis
Pierre Davis made history by becoming the first transgender designer to show at New York Fashion Week in 2019. NO SESSO, translated from Italian to English, means “no sex/no gender.” Her brand has amassed a huge following in LA and has even been worn by celebrities like Doja Cat and Tinashe. She hoped that No Sesso would “inspire people to be more community-minded and to realize not everything is just about aesthetics or commerce. It’s also about humanity.” Their Collection is a dash of Fall colors like gold, orange, brown, teal, and many more that truly scream “empowerment.”
