The City of Chicago hones so much talent it’ll make your head spin, especially within the Black Fashion Community where so many Style Gurus fly low on the radar due to all of the negative energy the city projects on a consistent basis.
Sad right? Well, for us talented and gifted Chicagoans it’s life and this double-edged sword we call ‘Windy’ is the perfectly flawed foundation that has produced some of the most extraordinary designers and fashion connoisseurs of the today’s society.
Don’t believe me? No worries, I’ll educate you instead – I can easily compile a list of which ones have shaped and are still setting trends as of now, but I’ll save that for a later date.
In the meantime, allow me to introduce to you one of Chicago’s silent fashion killers, Dante Beals of The Fashion Firm Chicago, during my years of research he is ALWAYS spoken of highly from his peers to his celebrity driven clientele. And if you ever get a chance to hear the conversations they’re priceless and majority of them start with his earlier years at the infamous Custom Kings where the connections aligned for Dante’s career and mastery of the Cut-and-Sew technique.
According to fellow fashion designers, Dante became one of the main commodities for any fashion projects within Chicago and throughout the music industry – and nothing has changed to this day, Dante’s infamous Cut-and-Sew skills are impeccable when it comes to designing and creating jackets, coats, chenille patches and custom apparel/footwear – Dante Beals is a beast!
Definitely your favorite rapper’s designer and his star power list speak for itself – Ever wonder who is designing those amazing varsity jackets celebs are rocking? You guessed it, Dante Beals of The Fashion Firm. Yes… Nas, Ricky Rozay, The Black Bottle Boys, Meek Mill, Derrick Rose, Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled, Future, Omarion, Lil Durk, Da Internz and etc are all clients of The Fashion Firm. That’s right, produced, created and designed in the City of Chicago!
