After moving from Puerto Rico to Boston at an early age, Dee Serret (now 28 years old) began studying architecture—an interest that developed into fashion as he transferred to The School of Fine Arts and soon after launched his debut New York collection in 2015. Now reflecting on his background, the queer designer's brand deeSerret offers a gender-neutral statement steeped in Puerto Rican heritage with emphasis on lines used in physical structures. His spring '18 capsule was inspired by his own style and ultimately created without men or women in mind. "I've always worn everything I wanted," Serret says, disregarding the confines of womenswear or menswear. "It's about how [fashion] makes you feel and how you embrace it."
