While presenting his Spring 2016 line last week, fashion designer Kerby Jean-Raymond tackled police brutality with a powerful video, fake-blood-spattered clothing and graffiti art, according to Style.Mic.


Jean-Raymond, founder of Pyer Moss, on Thursday showcased his collection at New York Fashion Week, telling the news outlet, "I decided to show the clothes last-minute. I just wanted to show the video."

The show featured a 10-minute video, which was shot in black and white and features the killing of Walter Scott, an unarmed black man shot in April by a police officer in South Carolina. It was followed by footage of black teens who were attacked by police in July at a Texas pool. It ends with Eric Garner, whose last words were "I can't breathe" as he was placed in a choke hold by a police officer, notes the report.  

He showcased the clothing line after the video.

"If I'm going to be the black designer," Jean-Raymond told Style.Mic, "I'm going to tell it my way."
