I peeped some LaQuan Smith pieces a while back without knowing who designed it. To my delight, I found his pieces struttin’ down the runway, on yesterday’s premiere of BET’s Rip The Runway. His heartfelt story and incredible designs won this girl’s heart over. All I’m saying is, my goal is to purchase at least one or two LaQuan Smith pieces this year. MUST!
LaQuan Smith, was born on August 30th, 1988 in Queens, NY. LaQuan has always had a love for fashion and design, but at the age of 13, his grandmother passed on her old Singer sewing machine for LaQuan to practice on. LaQuan began with simple patterns and then reached out and developed his own techniques on creating garments. After a tramautic and difficult battle with a cancer, LaQuan was able to regroup and refocus on his passion- fashion design. Multiple fashion experiences and pure ambition have opened doors for LaQuan allowing him to work with some of the industry’s top models and photographers. He started off designing custom pieces for an array of celebrities, pop culture icons and artists including: Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce’, Alicia Keys, Julissa Bermudez, Aubrey O’day, Amerie, Cassie Ventura, Justin Tranter of Semi Precious Weapons, top models Tyra Banks, Sessilee Lopez, Amber Rose, and fashion personality Andre J.
