Romeo Hunte is a contemporary lifestyle brand driven by the rawness and authenticity of street chic fashion. The New York-based brand reflects the eclectic city with its abstract details and clean aesthetic. Founded by Brooklyn-born designer Romeo Hunte, the brand heeds to the desire of effortlessly chic and casual style with a minimal yet complex flair.
The Brooklyn native began his career as a Vibe Magazine intern in the fashion department. As he gained traction, meeting more celebrities, stylists, and editors, and became known for having transitional outerwear and wearable statement pieces at its core. But it was a black and white striped wrap dress custom made for none other than Beyoncé herself that would truly solidify him as a serious young fashion talent. Romeo quoted in a Teen Vogue interview, “That custom dress broke the internet. I wanted to do something very sexy yet classic and clean for her. Something very Beyoncé but also Romeo Hunte.”

I was honored, to say the least, to be invited to his Presentation this NYFW season. Hunte is an amazing designer but also a trailblazer for young black designers.
