Brandon Maxwell launched his eponymous luxury women’s ready-to-wear label in New York in 2015. The brand was born out of the desire to make women feel beautiful, sophisticated and powerful by creating timeless garments that are impeccably tailored. With a focus on craftsmanship, the entire collection is designed and produced in New York City.
Brandon’s integrity is present throughout the process; he crafts his garments by draping rather than sketching to insure an ideal fit. Inspiration is drawn from the women whom Brandon surrounds himself with, which is evident from the sharp tailoring to the sculptural details. The brand is worn by many influential women, including Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Tiffany Haddish, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman, among many others. In 2016, Brandon was awarded the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear, the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for Womenswear and was an LVMH Prize Finalist.
