Brandon Maxwell Profile Information

Would you guys believe me if I said this is how I walked in to work every morning? Lolz don’t, because this pic took a stylist, two hair and makeup, double spanx, major flash, and a retouching, just to make me look.....normal? And who has time for that every day?! Also, I’m off to work this morning in Nike shorts, a Britney Spears T-shirt, mis-matched socks, and I’m probably going to have to drink my coffee out of a wine glass because it’s dish day and sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, you know? However you look walking in to work this morning, whatever it took to get you out the door, let it go, just celebrate the fact that you got there on time with your sanity in place!

Most Dads in the south grow up with the hopes and dreams that their son will be the next World Series or Super Bowl star, the Friday night lights dream, the small town boy done good, in an arena everyone can relate to. Growing up in the South I was, you might say, a little different than the other kids. At my very first baseball game I sat down in the outfield and made a bouquet of the flowers I had picked from the grass. In the 1st grade I came home and said I was thinking about creating plays and musicals. In the 5th grade after I discovered my love of rollerblades, I briefly pursued a career as a figure skater. I decided in 6th grade I was going to be the next gold medal winning gymnast. In 8th grade when I discovered fried food and my gymnast body failed me, I fell in love with taking photographs. After many years of art programs, dyed hair, and a few piercings, I graduated college with a degree in photography and promptly moved to NY to pursue a career in fashion. Through each phase, my Dad the Southern football player in cowboy boots and wranglers, met the moment and seized the opportunity to help me feel seen, never making me feel that my little dreams had squashed his own. Front row with a smile at every musical, hanging out on the sidelines clapping at every event, and framing every little achievement above almost every toilet in our house. Now at 34, the same Dad, in his wranglers and cowboy hat, runs my business. A business where we sell gowns and glamour, a business where we sell dreams. A job I am able to do solely because he allowed me to fully realize my own. I wake up each morning realizing how fortunate I am to have a parent who created a space for me to live authentically, proudly, and without shame. A parent who even in the worst of times, continues to steadily drive the car with the primary focus on making sure I am fulfilled, loved, and safe. Loving a child in their most formative years is, to me, the most important, and I realize how blessed I am to have had that. Happy Fathers Day to my dad, and to all the other men who step in to this role every day and help to change someone’s life. It’s not easy and we appreciate you. I ❤️ U, Dad!

It takes a village, y’all! That’s a wrap on season 1 of @projectrunwaybravo, season 2 here we come! Thank you to every single person who combs my hair, blots my face, holds a fan, aggressively pulls my Spanx over my head, and wipes crumbs off my shirt because I can’t stop eating in between takes (evidence in 2nd video.) It was a journey, and one I’m proud to have gone on! Seeing yourself on camera for the first time is ILLUMINATING to say the least, and I went through a lot of mental ups and downs getting used to my place there so thank you to the network, producers, and @karliekloss @ninagarcia @elainewelteroth @csiriano for being such great friends and holding my hand. Congratulations to the winner @iamsebastiangrey, I know you will do great things and we are here for you every step of the way. ❤️

You guys! I had soo much fun on @hodaandjenna today with @jennabhager & @savannahguthrie! 15 years ago on my very first day in New York City I stood outside of the Today show with a sign, filled with excitement and a dream, and 15 years later I got to sit in the studio! Jenna and Savannah could NOT have been more kind, and it was a real dream to be on! It’s so nice to wake up in the mornings and turn on the TV and see and hear someone that just reminds you of home, and someone that is spreading positivity in times when we really need it, so thank you both for doing THAT. It was a pleasure! ❤️

It’s Saturday morning, which means it’s the first time since Monday I’ve gotten to sit alone and have my coffee and be with my thoughts. I’m not sure if I accurately expressed my feelings in the whirlwind of this week, and if I didn’t, let me say it now.  I’m proud to be a working American Designer and to be a part of a peer group who rides the ride every day, through the struggles and the fight, with an eye always on the finish line and the end goal of creating something inspiring that helps to make another person feel good. For many years I had the opportunity to work on projects with so many people in that room on Monday, nominated and not, and I know truly that it’s not about Winning. It’s about picking yourself up when you feel that you’ve lost in the every day moments of life, when you’re up against the wall, and telling a story with your work that inspires and puts that pain to good use. That is the common thread that bonds us all, and I’m proud to be on the journey with each and every one of them. Every single person that was in that room is a winner, and there are so many others not invited to the room who are waiting to have the chance. Head to @cfda and familiarize yourself with all the designers working in New York City today and support them; beautiful, diverse, American businesses built through hard work and determination, backed by integrity and visioned with a purpose. Look around your communities and ask yourself if you can be helpful to another person that has the same dream of creating and crafting but may not have the access or opportunity. Open your hearts, your minds, your doors and your wallets to these people, because right now more than ever the world needs beauty, and joy, and all the ingredients are right in front of you. ❤️

Because you’ve given me a home, a shelter in the storm, and I wanted everyone to know. ❤️
