JIMMY BURNER ON TRANSFORMING HIS GRIEF INTO FASHION
Inspired by the passing of 3 people, now considered angels, close to Burner, the event will be themed accordingly. One of the losses was Burner’s father, business guru, Erwin Portis. The other 2 angels are in representation of two sisters whom Burner had known since childhood, Briana and Jade, who were killed in a car crash in March 2016. Burner plans to honor their home-going during the viewing.
Through his resilience, Burner, age 17, has transformed his grief into a fashion collection that his audience will love. The overall Jimmy Burner line also known as Jimmy’s Closet, features style for both men and women ranging from urban wear to luxury selections. Burner plans to wow his audience in Spring 2017 with a collection to remember.
Burner has already gained press attention by being featured in the Huffington Post as well as other fashion blogs. Style influencers such as Coco & Breezy and Brooklyn Beckham have also cosigned Burner’s vision as credible and inspiring.
Stay tuned to our blog later this month for pictures and a review of Burner's private viewing later this month.
