Our third guest for our ‘Wonder Women: An Evening of Extraordinary Talent’ event is, Denise Brown. As a UK Fashion Stylist, Consultant and Tutor she makes, creates and styles. Her passion and desire isn’t only to create distinctive looks; it’s to inspire and leave a lasting impression. A womenswear graduate from the world-renowned London College of Fashion, Denise acquired a strong adoration for fashion from the first time she picked up a needle and thread to hand sew her own outfit, aged just 12. She has worked alongside eminent fashion stylists such as Franklin Akinsete and Cynthia Lawrence-John, and her distinctive style has led her to dress some of the biggest names in pop culture including Kanye West, Rihanna, Eliza Doolittle and the Noisettes. Denise’s international clientele include MTV, GMTV, Nickelodeon and Polaroid. Additionally, she has styled campaigns for Bench, New Era and Wale Adeyemi to name a few. Throughout her career, Denise has worked with a diverse range of photographers including Andres Reynaga, Arron Dunworth, Daniel Thomas, Uzo Oleh and Curtis Benjamin to produce striking high fashion shoots and urban, street style looks. In 2007 Denise launched her own fashion label ‘Don’t Judge Me’- a collection inspired by her struggles, accomplishments and life lessons. The collection won the hearts of many celebrities including Mariah Carey and Tulisa from N Dubz, who both wore items from the collection. Don’t Judge Me captured the interest of the world’s media, allowing Denise to showcase her personal and original style on an international scale.
Denise’s story is certainly not one-dimensional, and we look most forward to learning of her trials and tribulations as she continues to strive towards even greater success.
