Delvin McCray launched his eponymous brand in 2016, with the vision to make clothing to change the way people feel, utilizing couture techniques. Born and raised in Chicago, Delvin was trained in the fine arts from an early age, realizing his obsession with fashion as a teen. He completed his degree in Fashion Design at Columbia College Chicago where he received awards in several competitions such as The Richard Driehaus Design Initiative, The AGG Sustainable Fashion Show, The Stanley Paul Foundation Scholarship, The Chicago Fashion Foundation Fashion Competition, and Autohaus: Launch Driving Fashion Forward Competition.
Lead by his love for the craft, Delvin studied under a master tailor for a few years and then under a master corset maker in London. Following in the footsteps of couturiers that he admired, he also was trained in couture beadwork, a significant element of the brand.
Today, Delvin runs his business from his showroom located in Bridgeport, offering luxury retail and striking couture garments and bespoke suits with the highest skill. His private clientele notes his attention to detail and exquisite fabric selection from all over the world.
Delvin McCray officially launched his namesake brand at the age of 24. Following an intense internship where he learned to master the craft of couture sewing and bespoke suit tailoring, Delvin developed a following with private clients across the chicagoland area and neighboring suburbs. After opening his first atelier and showroom in 2016, he introduced the diffusion line REDD by Delvin McCray, offering more affordable dresses and daywear.
Delvin continues to develop the eminently sought out luxury brand with profound expertise in corsetry, tailoring, and couture bead work. Sourcing fabrications and notions around the globe, skilled hands meticulously craft each garment, showcasing his dark, romantic style.
