Romeo Hunte: The Next Big Thing in the Fashion World
I would like to start this New Year by introducing you to a very talented designer whose work I highly admire. His name is Romeo Hunte. Romeo Hunte is one of the most promising young designers turning heads in the world of fashion today. He was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. He is known for his ‘definitive lifestyle brand’ tailored for today’s bold woman who embraces the chic look and appreciates intricate details.
Romeo Hunte: The Background Story
Fashion has always appealed to him since he was a young boy. It’s perhaps growing around sassy women whose creative essence and approach to fashion inspired Romeo Hunte right from a tender age. He pursued his dream of rising to the helm of the fashion industry. Before launching his much-acclaimed line of fashion in 2014, Romeo Hunte attended the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Rise to Fame
Romeo Hunte’s first break into the industry wasn’t by accident. He started whipping up elegant, vintage clothes with his grandma at the age of 13. He also got his feet wet in fashion as an intern at Prada and Vibe Magazine. But, it was when he custom designed an outfit for Beyonce that he rose to the limelight.
Beyoncé wore Romeo Hunte’s signature buffalo check shawl, and the internet went berserk. The shawl complimented well his black & white striped wrap dress tailored especially for Queen B. With 300 dazzling brass buttons, the striped dress was sexy, classy, and clean; an outfit befitting the songbird.
“When she tried it on, it fit perfectly. It was so good,” the young designer tells Teen Vogue magazine.
Even before then, Romeo Hunte had been dressing A-list celebrity Zendaya, who wore his outfits thrice for press week. Also, Saks Fifth Avenue and Net-A-Porter had taken notice of the upcoming fashion designer. With the ranks of Lupita Nyong’o, Winnie Harlow, and Laverne Cox donning his designs, Romeo Hunte is no shabby.
Fabulous Design and Fashion Style
Romeo Hunte’s designs will simply knock your socks off (literally). Each collection he designs exudes the perfect blend of functionality and creativity. His fashion items are sophisticated and sassy yet chic and stylish. His 2018 spring collection is driven by raw and authentic street chic fashion that’ll make huge headlines throughout the year.
