'I have always been surrounded by smart, classic, and powerful women, and I have always enjoyed seeing them at their most beautiful. The collection is inspired by those women.'- Brandon Maxwell
Fashion is a difficult business. The interning, the long hours, the showing your worth when every door gets repeatedly slammed in your face. It takes a certain kind of focus and chic charisma to breakthrough and with more bold celebrities looking to be 'different', the demand for new upcoming designers is everything. Fashion is something so expressive yet personal that celebrities are more than ready to endorse those designers they think would cut it long term in the industry. Take for example, Brandon Maxwell. Not disregarding his extraordinary work history as a second hand to Nicola Formichetti (remember Gaga's meat dress?) he then went on to be Lady Gaga's personal stylist herself, dressing her in the likes of Valentino and Roberto Cavalli. He is now more than ready for his own success with his ready-to-wear collection.
