Brandon Maxwell is Touching Hearts!
by Elena Sendona
He is humble to the point that many well-dressed ladies became aware of his immense creative caliber this year, while watching him fashion-choreographing Lady Gaga at the Met Gala and later was receiving his CFDA Award as Designer of the Year for Women’s. His speech – which I watched on the treadmill at the gym amidst many other obligations – was so touching that it reduced me to tears as well.
Although he has been working hard for years and years for the artistic vision of important people including Edward Enningful and Nicola Formichetti, his real breakthrough as a top-tier designer happened recently. Dresses seen on Karlie Kloss, Michelle Obama, and other important ladies has gradually – since 2015 – put him in the map of red-carpet-worthy designers. We love the structure of the dresses, the cut-outs, the versatility of each creation, the many ways you often are able to wear it. Nobody denies that he evolves as one of the hottest designers in Holywood and he is only 34!
