Raised in small conservative towns throughout central and eastern North Carolina, André Edwards has always looked to fashion, works of art, and the drag art form for inspiration when defining his style.  He loves working around sustainability and believes “Anything can inspire fashion – Fashion can inspire anything”.  When describing his design interests, he leans towards those that are provocative, witty, and campy.  With his design approach, he aims to deliver conceptually imaginative ideas. 

André is a recent graduate of Appalachian State University where he studied Apparel Design and Merchandising with a minor in Digital Marketing.
