Romeo Hunte

Romeo Hunte's eponymous line catapulted to fame after Beyonce wore his striped mini dress that ended up on Then came the internet hype, and from there he became the cool, underrated designer among a sea of emerging artists. Time would tell if his brand would last, as many that came before him failed to live up to that same hype. 

Over the next few years, Romeo carved his way into the fashion industry, with  mentions in WWD and Teen Vogue as a 'Designer to Watch.' Just last year, he was nominated for the Womenswear Fashion Group International Rising Star Award. It's clear his best work is his outerwear, but looking closely at the last collection we see something else happening - a symmetry merging himself and his art. You know that saying, when you don't overthink something you do it better? Most artists will eventually take a look at their inner self and try to connect their art to themselves. It's obvious Romeo is more comfortable in the studio, with his audience and with himself.

Spring has a vibe that's chic, comfortable and extremely sexy. We can't wait to see what Romeo creates for fall - especially the outerwear.
