NEW YORK — On Saturday and Sunday, Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn reworked into the house of one of the anticipated off-runway vogue exhibits of the 12 months: Afropunk.

Based by James Spooner and Michael Morgan in 2005, Afropunk Music Pageant is an annual celebration of Black music, arts, activism and tradition. The 2-day competition spans the globe in London, Brazil, South Africa and throughout the USA, attracting over 60,000 attendees yearly.

For the first time since 2019, Afropunk returned to its residence base in Brooklyn, an unapologetic celebration of Blackness in all types. Replete with a video tribute to the competition’s political punk roots, acts this 12 months included Doechii, The Roots, Tierra Whack, Isaiah Rashad, BBYMutha, Earl Sweatshirt and headliners Adekunle Gold, Fortunate Daye and Burna Boy.

Afropunk attendees got here to the competition donning their most inventive seems to be. Although the rain might have put a damper on the out of doors festivities, the drip was immaculate. Be it Afros adorned with flowers and butterflies to anime-themed ensembles, diamond-encrusted cowboy hats and strapping leather-based skirts, the model didn’t disappoint.

Try all the perfect seems to be from Afropunk Brooklyn 2022 under.
