Get to know Rihanna’s new favorite designer: Maximilian Davis

By Alejandra Hernandez

Who is Maximilian Davis and why is Rihanna wearing him? We got the answer for you. He’s a 25-year-old up-and-coming designer from London and as you may already know, Rihanna loves supporting young designers, so it’s nothing new she got into him before most, because of how he portraits Black liberation and of course, his talent for couture. Davis used to work as a junior designer for Grace Wales Bonner, and now, his own designs are reaching people all over the world, as he is sold in prestigious international outlets, including Net-A-Porter, Browns and SSENSE.

Riri’s boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, was also spotted wearing the label, which makes sense considering they are one of the most stylish couples at the moment. But how is Davis making noise in the fashion industry?

Dua Lipa wore a custom Maximilian dress for the industry celebration and approved that black is always an option to look elegant and chic. Lorenzo Prozocco (her stylist) always gets it right and following Riri’s steps was a great move.

Davis established himself as one of London’s most exciting fashion talents thanks to this collection. It incorporated references to sources as disparate as the art of the 20th century Trinidadian dancer and painter Boscoe Holder, the music of Donna Summer and the exuberant images of ‘60s-era nightlife.
