Gent by Brainchild unveiled St. Louis’ men’s fashion on Thursday night at the Majorette with a sold-out production coming off of a pause in 2018 due to the pandemic. Founder and creator of “Gent by Brainchild” Dwight Carter put on a phenomenal production that was a well-executed show with the likes of Terrill Keith (Model Liaison Expert) orchestrating the flow of the runway. Dwight added fashion power-houses Paulie Gibson, Love Is One, Lukas Roe, and YING YING YING to deliver a fashionable and memorable message.

Dwight’s sponsors included SIBA, Salon Centric, STLFA (St. Louis Fashion Alliance), State Beauty Supply, Salon Antebellum, Aesthetically Obsessed, Go Market U, and esteemed modeling agencies Mpr3ssion Modeling Agency, and Mother Model.

Without designers, there are no fashion shows, there’s no fashion scene, there’s no retail, no models, there would be nothing for them to wear, so it’s imperative to support our designers.”

With the ambiance set and fashion goers seated, it was now time to introduce the latest masterpieces worn by an eclectic array of models. This runway featured quite a few legends off of the runway, like football wide receiver superstar CJay Boone, who walked in his first show on Thursday night he had this to say;

” It was an amazing experience, had me a bit nervous when I was driving to the venue, but I have a very outgoing personality and I am easy to work with and talk to, so I soaked up everything I could over the six hours and I feel like I killed it and the crowd enjoyed me too. I spoke to a lot of people and they said “this is made for me.” I want to thank Mary and Jeff at Mother Model for giving me this stage to be great on, and I am looking forward to more.”
