The Perfect Hustle: Iconic Fashion Designer Miguel Wilson
Whether it’s his bold and unfettered address of society or his refusal to align with the industry’s demands, Miguel Wilson makes and creates his own lane. His talent is a demonstration of what happens when the discussion around fashion is diverse and accommodating to his fashion audience.
Created by celebrity fashion designer Miguel Wilson, The Miguel Wilson Collection is a luxury men’s fashion label composed of suits, sportcoats, trousers, shirts, and accessories.
With a flagship store in Atlanta and a new store in Washington D.C., Wilson has dressed many high-profile men for their big day including actor Josh Morgan (star of the CW’s “The Originals” and “The Vampire Diaries,” filmmaker Will Packer, rapper 2 Chainz, singer KEM, and Real Housewives of Atlanta husbands Todd Tucker,Peter Thomas, and Michael Sterling.
Wilson truly eloquently represents African American culture in fashion. He has established a brand you will continue to see and know for decades to come.
While Wilson has made many custom formal looks for high-profile men, he’s been the go-to guy for weddings, prompting him to produce a specialized Wedding Collection, with the tagline “Because It’s His Day Too.” All of Miguel’s grooms get to enjoy a special grooms lounge prior to their wedding and after the big day are brought back to participate in Miguel’s runway shows for his Wedding Collection as models. Additionally, his collection is held in a few bridal shops across the country.
“I felt there was a lacking brand that represented men in weddings. My tagline is : It’s his day too.”– Miguel Wilson, Owner of Miguel Wilson Collection
Wilson discusses the Atlanta Fashion and Polo Classic and despite the COVID-19 pandemic, he’ll be doing it again this year.
The Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic funds my foundation which is called Ride to the Olympics. The foundation is geared towards helping inner city kids be exposed to horses and horse sports as well as leadership opportunities. Horses are the main function but we want to expose them to something that they are not used to in order to create different opportunities for them while meeting people they would not ever meet.– Miguel Wilson discussing the mission of the Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic
What else can we expect from Miguel Wilson…
Well, I’m always in the constant state of design. I always want to think through tomorrow. One, you can count on me staying on the cutting edge of fashion. Two, you can count on Miguel Wilson providing an experience for our clients that come into Miguel Wilson showrooms. We want everyone to feel phenomenal when they come to us. We take weddings seriously because when people get married, it’s one of the most important days of their lives. We want to celebrate the occasion with you. Getting a tux in the past can be a headache but we wanted to create an environment for men what women so much enjoy when they pick out their gown.– Miguel Wilson
