Brandon Maxwell's 81-year-old grandmother stars in major new fashion campaign

Brandon Maxwell’s 81-year-old grandmother, whom he refers to as “Mammaw,” is the star of his new fall fashion campaign. The designer, who has dressed Meghan Markle, Lady Gaga, and Michelle Obama, credits his grandmother, Louise Johnson, as a major influence in his life.

“My life in fashion was very much informed by and as a result of my relationship with my grandmother,” Maxwell shared in a press release. “I’ve spoken endlessly about having grown up in a clothing store with her and the effect that had on me as a young child, which ultimately led me on my career path. Beyond our shared interests there is also a deep and never-ending love between us that has sustained me throughout my life. I am proud to have created this legacy project that immortalizes our relationship. This film and series of photographs is, as always, an invitation to our customers into my life: past and present.”
