About Brandon Maxwell

Brandon Maxwell launched his luxury women’s ready-to-wear label with a focus on craftsmanship and tailoring, in New York City in 2015. Brandon began his fashion journey as a child playing under the racks of his grandmother's clothing store in Longview, Texas. This experience laid the foundation for a career in photography and fashion styling; eventually leading Brandon to his eponymous brand best known for red-carpet gowns and award-winning runway creations. Dressing everyone from Oscar-nominated actresses to heads of state, Brandon Maxwell believes that everyone should have access to smart, well-made clothing that makes them feel their best. In addition to his role as Creative Director of Brandon Maxwell, Brandon is also a television personality, most recently serving as a judge on BravoTV’s Project Runway.
