On the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff, joined President-elect Joe Biden and Dr Jill Biden in taking part in a solemn memorial dedicated to the more than 400,000 Americans who have died after contracting COVID-19.
Kamala’s speech paid tribute to the lives lost and called for the nation to begin healing together, while wearing a Pyer Moss camel coat, that much like Jill Biden’s look, also held significance.
Pyer Moss founder Kerby Jean-Raymond is not only known for his activism opposing racial injustice, but his efforts in the past year to support local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the start of the pandemic, he converted his New York office into a donation centre and donated $5,000 for the purchase of masks and gloves. He also donated $50,000 for minority and women-owned small creative businesses that were distressed by COVID-19.
New York Times fashion editor Vanessa Friedman tweeted, “It’s not about fashion. It’s about values.” Something a lot of people have felt has been lacking from the previous administration.
