Fashion Watch: The man behind Cicely Tyson’s dress

Right from the start, B Michael was fated to be a fashion designer. Growing up in Durham, Connecticut, he found early inspirations in his mother, whose family extends back four generations. Her creativity and keen sense of style passed on to her son, and like his eclectic family tree, B Michael incorporates the fantastic with understated cool, sensational color with elegance and emotion. His designs have been featured editorially on Halle Berry and Cate Blanchett and this year at the 2013 Tony Awards, Cicely Tyson was wrapped in a royal blue ruffled gown by B Michael. Sisters Venus and Serena Williams have been spotted sitting front-row at his runway shows wearing B Michael clothes. But B Michael is not just a nine to five o’clock designer.
