“Now I’m the bad guy, call me Chun-Li”. Rapper Nicki Minaj has been spotted in a fair few Brandon James designs recently. He’s an individual underground designer which is super cool because he’s anything but mainstream. Some of the best names and brands in fashion are the ones who lay low and let their talent do the talking. Today’s #ANewDiscovery article is going to be short and sweet.

Our favourite Barbie, Nicki Minaj is an avid lover of this up-and-coming designer. Not only did we spot her sporting the attention-grabbing pink jacket up top, but she also wore the black version in Ariana’s The Light Is Coming video not so long ago. Brandon James is taking the puffer jacket to a whole new level or should I say ‘length’ will it’s floating above the floor vibe.

American rapper, Seandrea Sledge, better known as Dreezy is also a fan and redefining the definition of coolness.

Who is Brandon D James?

The truth is, he’s that underground that he takes all designing requests online. Each piece is custom made for that particular client. And now, it all makes sense.

When you think about celebrities, when it comes to their fashion, it’s unusual for other people to access easily. This is because their celeb status comes hand in hand with exclusivity with everything. From clothing to accessories and even hair, they all have incredible stylists who source the most unique clothing pieces.

Despite the fact that the Brandon James brand is still developing, he has already gained a fair share of media coverage. These include Cosmopolitan Mexico, Lucy’s Magazine and others. His clothing is often using for editorial photo shoots over advertising campaigns.

What makes his brand so unique is his skill for being able to fuse fashion and music, more specifically hip hop, to create incredibly artistic pieces.

He really is truly talented. Now, hands up if you see big things coming up for Brandon James?!
