So after much rescheduling and of course that pesky lil thing called time zone difference (the UK is 6 hours ahead of Jamaican time), I was finally able to sit down and have a little tête-à-tête with upcoming London-based designer to the stars (Kelly Rowland, Christina Milian, Naomi Campbell) and friend, Romero Bryan. Here's what we spoke about:
The ROMERO BRYAN mainline is my higher end brand that catches the attention of celebrities and wealthier women who want to stand out in sexy, edgy dresses. Kelly Rowland and Elizabeth Jagger are some of the fans and customers of this line.
ROME by Romero Bryan is a diffusion line, derived from the ideas showcased in the previous collections of ROMERO BRYAN, like Bra Strap details etc. Its a more cost effective brand for those with less disposable cash.
I have favourite designers such as John Galliano, Karl Lagerfield and ALEXANDER McQUEEN, but I wouldnt want to design for that certain level as I really love and enjoy the high street level. Desiging for the mass is really more my kind of thing. I want to be the next Sir Phillip Green lol.
I mean, I make enough money to do all the things in life i want to do, and i'm not short of anything at all. So actually, yea i'm very happy with the reception, and even more recently i'm now stocked in several shops/boutiques in the [United] States.
