Brandon Smith


: Charlotte, North Carolina
Collection Title: The Crazy 88


As an adolescent Brandon was very intrigued by art and design. He ventured into architecture for some time and eventually into Fashion where he found the most creative freedom. As a student at NC State he became increasingly intrigued with design and began work on his undergraduate portfolio. There he developed a keen interest in stripping down the female silhouette to its most minimal form and disturbing those proportions. Through the Wilson College of Textiles he gained the technical skills needed to bring his designs to form and the knowledge to maneuver successfully in the fashion industry.

Collection Description: The Fall l Winter ’15 collection entitled “The Crazy 88,” garners inspiration from studying traditional Japanese silhouettes, along with various films in order to develop an ideal aesthetic through raw and more natural fabrics.
