Today we’d like to introduce you to Brandon Hunt.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Brandon. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I began my fashion career in modeling. I was chosen to model for Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats for a Reebok campaign, traveled to New York to do fashion shows and did many local shows. After modeling for other brands, I had an interest in doing my own fashion shows. This is when I began to style other designer’s shows and design clothing for specific clients.
With a love for fashion, I decided to create my own brand to stand out in the fashion industry. In 2015, I launched Livintage Apparel, an online shop selling vintage and custom pieces. My love for fashion skyrocketed as I dove deeper into styling. In 2016, my brand was featured in Phoenix Fashion Week where I styled and designed a complete fashion show and won first place as best stylist in Arizona. This opportunity catapulted my career to the next level as I began to build my styling clientele and do celebrity styling. I worked behind the scenes on tour with Danileigh, r&b artist, Lance Gross, actor, and many other tv stars. I currently travel doing pop up shops and fashion shows worldwide. I’m best known for my elaborate fashion shows and photoshoots. In 2019, I opened my first retail store in Phoenix, Arizona. My styles also appeared on the red carpet for the Country Music Awards 2019. Currently, I reside in Dallas, TX and I’m focusing on my wardrobe styling clientele and opening a physical store locally. My items can be shopped online or locally at pop up shops. I am also always looking for great new people to work with as a personal wardrobe stylist.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road. The fashion industry is very hard to get into and be successful in. In regards to my store, I worked really hard and diligently for years to build my audience and create a culture around my brand. I personally struggled at first with how to market myself as a credible stylist and business owner. I had to prove myself to the industry by creating great content for consumers to see my work. In the process I was able to meet many great people in the industry and make a name for myself. If I can give any advice to anyone beginning this journey, I’d say don’t give up on yourself. Stay consistent and it’ll eventually all fall into place.
