About the Chicago-based fashion designer:
Born in Alabama, the passionate designer developed his dreams of a career in women’s fashion early on in life. Throughout his childhood, while observing his mother preparing for a night out on the town or even a Sunday visit to church, he trained his young eyes on color and silhouette. This is how his lifelong dream began.
Powell’s fashion inspirations also come from travel and a devotion to study. His collections include exciting approaches to big ideas ranging from philosophy to cinema. From Milan and Paris to Amsterdam and Shanghai, he’s absorbed a sense of global ideas of what looks best on the female body.
Inspired by the masterful shapes of Christian Dior, Powell followed his dreams and moved to Chicago to start his design career in 1997. Over the following decade, he pursued his vision with an infectious entrepreneurial talent and creativity that has built him a devoted following of fans.
