Brandon Maxwell is a luxury women’s ready-to-wear label launched in New York in 2015. The brand was born out of the desire to make women feel beautiful, sophisticated and powerful, with timeless garments that are impeccably tailored. With a focus on craftsmanship, the entire collection is designed in New York City.
Brandon MaxwellSurrounded 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. Maxwell established a styling career in 2012 acting as a fashion director to Lady Gaga and working on fashion campaigns and editorials for talented photographers such as Inez and Vinoodh, Mario Sorrenti and Mario Testino.
Inspired by the strong women Maxwell surrounds himself with, his hallmark style of sharp tailoring and sculptural details are apparent in his namesake collection. Each season the designs evolve but the muse stays the same.
The brand is worn by many iconic women, including Michelle Obama, Meghan Markle, Oprah, Blake Lively, Jane Fonda, Queen Rania of Jordan and Tiffany Haddish.
