FASHION WEEK

From a Pregnant Lily Aldridge to Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, Brandon Maxwell’s Spring 2019 Fashion Show Was a Family Affair


Serichai Traipoom for W Magazine.

In August, fashion designer Brandon Maxwell revealed his Fall 2018 campaign stars none other than his 81-year-old grandmother Louise Johnson, so it’s no surprise that his Spring 2019 fashion show, held on Saturday evening at the Classic Car Club on Manhattan’s Pier 76, was a family affair. Supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid both walked in the show alongside Taylor Hill, Grace Elizabeth, Joan Smalls, and Stella Maxwell (of no relation to Brandon). A visibly pregnant Lily Aldridge also made an appearance on the runway, wearing a red dress that showed off her growing bump. Of course, grandma Louise was there, too. Here, a backstage look at the designer’s Marfa-inspired fashion show.
