On April 13th, Bell’s Fine Clothing had the pleasure of partnering with renowned New York fashion designer B Michael, founder of B Michael America. The designer, as well as CEO of the company, Mark Anthony Edwards, paid Bell’s a visit during their weekend in Winchester and presented the store with its first rack of B Michael dresses.
B Michael founded his namesake company in 1989, and has been a staple in the fashion industry ever since. The brand’s focus is to design pieces for women of style, grace and class. His designs have been worn by several celebrities such as Beyoncé, Halle Berry, Cicely Tyson, and Lena Horne, just to name a few. Michael also designed Whitney Houston’s wardrobe for the film “Sparkle”.
In an article from The Winchester Star, author Brian Brehm quoted B Michael saying, “We believe in independent specialty stores. The brick-and-mortar [businesses] that are really sustaining themselves in this world are the smaller stores that have a specific niche. When you go into a store like Bell’s, you expect to have an experience. You won’t get that online.”
Edwards also mentioned that independent stores focus more on the designs and fashion themselves rather than the marketing behind it.
