Brandon Maxwell is best known for being the stylist to pop star, Lady Gaga. For his Spring/Summer 2017 campaign, he tapped Victoria’s Secret model and close friend, Riley Montana.
In the campaign photos and accompanying video directed by Jessy Price, Riley can be seen in her hometown of Detroit, flanked by members of her family. In the video, she’s clad in Brandon Maxwell’s pieces, narrating the story of her struggling beginnings to her current position as one of fashion’s top black models.
The campaign and video are inspired by Maxwell’s mantra, which is to “Move forward, but never forget where you came from“. See the video full here, watch a short version below.
