We are so excited to be back with our #HowTheyDoDapper series, and we can't think of anyone better suited to bring in 2022 with a bang! Everyone, meet Brandon. Brandon is a brilliantly talented artist across several mediums - acting, interior design, art direction, wardrobe design, and those are just the ones he's specifically shared with us! Basically, if it has an aesthetic, Brandon's magic touch is guaranteed to make it look better. He's just got an eye! One quick look at his Instagram showcases his daring editorial concepts and vivid styling. We were so intrigued by the C+L items he picked out to style, and couldn't wait to see the finished looks. Brandon boldly took the Stella tie and June kerchief into a completely new direction - and we are obsessed with the results!
Read on to get acquainted with our multi-talented friend, Brandon.

Tell us a little bit about the story you're writing in your Clifton+Leopold:
Complete this sentence: I love the C + L ___________ because _________:
I love the C + L aesthetic because it’s quirky, versatile and confident.
It's a Saturday! What are you doing?
Weekends are normally for catching up on auditions and creative content prep…but mostly naps
Your ultimate dapper icon:
It’s so varied from day to day. From Harry Styles and Jeff Goldblum all the way back to Cary Grant
It's quitting time on any given day. What are you sipping on? All the water I forgot to drink that day
A dance party is not complete without (song or artist): 80s and 90s hits (and don’t be stingy with the Britney)
Tell us, what makes you feel dapper?
Expressing emotion and creativity through fashion and feeling confident and free in that creation. The human form is just another canvas and we are all free to cover it in whatever speaks to us.
