Brandon Maxwell started out with a small rack of samples last year, and now he’s releasing his very popular spring-summer collection. Maxwell, aged 32, has gone from dreaming of watching his designs grace the red carpet during award season, to actually seeing them cascade on celebrities of the highest degree. His pieces are refreshingly simple while staying true to the word “fashion.” His new collection has modest patterns with bold cuts. Everything in Maxwell’s new collection flows.
Maxwell caught his big break by dressing Lady Gaga in satin gowns after her meat dress phase. His success has skyrocketed, and there are no signs of stopping. Maxwell has dressed women from Kerry Washington’s stunning black cut-out dress that showed her baby bump, to the First Lady Michelle Obama. His work has been everywhere recently, so chances are you will recognize one of his signature satin creations.
On top of Maxwell’s incredible resumé and amazing spring-summer collection is the fact that his models are diverse. His runway shows feature women of all colors and looks. He is not only embracing the progress the fashion industry has made in equality, but amplifying it.
He’s every satin loving girl/guy’s best friend, and he’s just getting started.
