Memo 225: Byron Lars Beauty Marked Up Like the Subway in Harlem

To: All
From: Me
Date: February 29, 2016
Subject: The Black Style List: Designers of Color - Part V

On this last day of probably the blackest black history month in the history of black history months, I'm featuring a mixed-print and texture aficionados' favorite designer, Bryon Lars.

The Byron Lars Beauty Mark aesthetic is ever body conscious because Byron remains obsessively conscious of the female body while designing them. He's all about making clothes that make the most of what God gave a girl.   

"I love seeing a woman standing in front of the mirror and taking in all of her own fabulousness after having tried on something of mine.  That's the real pay off for me!" - Bryon Lars
The Bryon Lars maxi cardigan, leather pants and moto skirt featured in these looks saved my life during one of the coldest fashion weeks of my life! I mean when you can get fashion and function out of your pieces, that's the true victory in my book.
