Brandon Blackwood won 2023. Just ask Beyonce, Kerry Washington, Megan Thee Stallion, Serena Williams, or Fantasia Barrino. These fashionistas are just a few of the A-listers who slayed with the fashion brand this year.

Scroll to see our gallery of them and their dope designer looks.

Throughout 2023, there was hardly an event where we didn’t see Brandon Blackwood. The Brooklyn-born designer was the accessory or ensemble of choice for many attendees at events from film premieres and red carpets to girls’ nights out and dinner dates.

Further, our social media feeds were filled with his clever marketing, innovative, nostalgic, and couture-like designs, and fans unboxing their newest BB goodies. Over the past 364 days, Brandon’s popularity has skyrocketed, and he has further stitched his place in the fashion world.

It is important to note, however, that true fashionistas have known, worn, and loved Brandon Blackwood for years. He’s been a staple in the industry, and his “End Systematic Racism” tote defined a movement and a significant era.

But 2023 ushered in new opportunities for the man and the brand. This year, Brandon designed custom gowns for Serena Williams, Karreuche Tran, Megan Thee Stallion, and the Queen of the Renaissance, Beyonce.

And the designer elevated his accessory line.

While Brandon Blackwood’s handbags and accessories were never typical, new versions are unexpected and outside the box. Brandon Blackwood is more than just a tote or mini bag. Brandon’s designs reflect the future of fashion while giving the girlies the luxury trends, quality, and style they seek.
