Read More About Cedric Brown

Cedric Brown, 25, is a fashion designer and visual artist. In his hometown of Atlanta, GA, he runs a family-owned apparel business. Raised by a single mother, her phenomenal style was his inspiration for his fashion sketches. Instead of getting caught up in a destructive cycle he expressed himself through his art. Through hard work and dedication he received national scholarships and grants to pay his way through college. He received a B.F.A in Fashion Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and also took business courses at the Operation Hope center.

While attending SCAD, his fashion professors advised him to incorporate his painting background into his apparel designs. In his Senior Collection he produced hand-painted and hand-dyed designs which received great reviews from his professors and peers. Later, he decided to launch his line of accessories. Featuring his original artwork, each accessory has a story to tell and can be worn anywhere. 

His artwork has been featured in the "Peace, Friendship, Goodwill through the Olympic Spirit" 2008 exhibition in Beijing, China. In 2010, his painting "As the Twig Bends, so the Tree Inclines" was selected for permanent display in the National Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. In addition, he gained professional work experience through design internships and freelance work in New York City and Hong Kong, as well as interning at big corporations such as Sears/K-Mart, Li and Fung Limited, and Carter's. He's on his way to becoming a leading American fashion brand.
