Brandon Maxwell presents his second collection in all black and white, with his friend and client Lady Gaga in attendance at the intimate New York show. Fashion Designer & Stylist Brandon Maxwell is best known for his work with Lady Gaga. This was a great show. Check it out ladies 😉
“I think I’m known as a celebrity stylist,” said Brandon Maxwell, confirming his professional reputation while disputing it. “I don’t live in L.A. I live in New York and I do a lot of editorial. I have one celebrity client.”
But that’s all it takes when the one and only is Lady Gaga. Don’t get him wrong — Maxwell is grateful to Gaga, who let him reshape her look to a relatively more sophisticated degree, particularly over the course of the last year when he put her in Azzedine Alaïa for the Oscars, Valentino and Roberto Cavalli for her lounge singer-esque “Cheek to Cheek” tour with Tony Bennett, and a custom-made silver mermaid gown designed by Maxwell himself for the Grammys. The era of the meat dress belonged to Maxwell’s predecessor and mentor Nicola Formichetti, who Maxwell assisted for a little more than two years.
