The show included a screening of the film The World Isn’t Everything as well as live music.

Liberian-American designer Telfar Clemens opened Paris Fashion Week yesterday (September 23) with a collaborative, audiovisual runway show for Telfar’s SS2020 collection.

The show, which took place at La Cigale theatre, was accompanied by a screening of Clemens’ film The World Isn’t Everything, a short version of which was shown at New York Fashion Week earlier this month.

The film was co-directed by Petra Collins and Clayton Vomero with writing credits from Jeremy O. Harris and Juliana Huxtable and music by Steve Lacy. The cast includes Butch Dawson, Ian Isiah, Kelsey Lu, Ashton Sanders and Diamond Stingily.

As Clemens told Vogue, the show featured Parisian DJ Crystallmess contributing a live score to the film with vocals by Klein. Women’s Wear Daily reports that the show also featured an additional musical performance by Lancey Foux.
