Brooklyn based designer and celebrity favorite Romeo Hunte is definitely one to watch. At New York Fashion Week we were able to catch up with the rising star who’s taking the fashion world by storm with his avant-garde creations, and in this exclusive interview, he tells us more about his coveted brand.
01 Quote: Romeo Hunte
“I wanted to change the narrative of business casual to the business street, and mixing those roles together and also adding some key things I love, like very sporty and very dressy… …The pieces are very flexible and are actually gender-fluid and can be male or female, they kind of play a brother-sister story as I like to say”.
As Romeo’s fanbase keeps growing, so does his celebrity following. With so many designers out there, we are curious what Hunte does to stand out and catch the eye of iconic women, like Michelle Obama and Mary J. Blige.

“I think social media plays a great role and also being known for something. When it came down to Michelle, she wanted me to be myself and make something that was tailored to her. And she is a working woman, and that was a lot of inspiration”.
From dressing the former first lady to celebs like Zendaya and Beyoncé, it looks like this is just the beginning for this groundbreaking fashion designer.
