Brandon Maxwell is a luxury women’s ready-to-wear label launched in New York in 2015.
His new, RTW line has been turning heads and creating a recent buzz around the fashion industry, so I decided to give you the low- down.
Ya know, so you look like you know when you’re talking about. I’ll never forget the moment I was talking to a group about Celine bags, and a girl said “Celine Dion makes bags?” I almost lost my shit.
The brand was born out of the desire to make women feel beautiful, sophisticated and powerful, with timeless garments that are impeccably tailored. (What every girl wants.) With a focus on craftsmanship, the entire collection is designed and produced in New York City.
Surrounded by immaculately dressed women from a young age, Maxwell was captivated by the women who passed through the boutique where his grandmother worked in Longview, Texas. He went on to study photography at St. Edward’s University in Austin, and began assisting stylist Deborah Afshani in 2009, followed by Edward Enninful, and then Nicola Formichetti in 2010.
This cool guy has also acted as the fashion director to Lady Gaga since 2012.
Inspired by the strong women Brandon surrounds himself with, his hallmark style of sharp tailoring and sculptural details are apparent in his namesake collection. The brand has been worn by many influential women, including Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman, among many others.
Brandon Maxwell was awarded the Fashion Group International Rising Star award for Womenswear in January 2016. In June 2016, he was awarded the CFDA Swarovksi award for Womenswear. Play on with your bad self.
Here are some of my favorite looks from his collection:
