A new episode of the Baller Alert Show podcast is here for your listening purposes! Things get personal in episode 149, which features special guest, celebrity fashion designer Miguel Wilson, who also designed Rari’s suit for his wedding!
As always, the show kicked off with In Case You Missed It, where Su highlights some of the latest news and trending topics. In this episode, she talks about Lil Baby’s Paris arrest, Ari Fletcher putting a hairstylist on blast by sharing some screenshots of a text conversation but forgetting to blackout her number, and more.
Celebrity fashion designer Miguel Wilson then joins the crew to discuss his luxury menswear designs, his all-black polo team, fashion & polo classic and more.
All-Black Polo Team
Miguel grew up riding horses in DC and wanted to give other kids the same opportunity. Through his foundation, Miguel helps put together polo teams for the inner-city youth. He is also the co-founder of Morehouse’s polo team, the first and only Black college polo team.
Suits & Ties
Miguel owns menswear boutiques in Atlanta, Miami, DC, and New York. He designs for various people, from everyday guys to celebrities like Lil Baby and 2 Chainz. Miguel shared that his niche is wedding attire for men, noting that he noticed many people weren’t in the space when he initially started his business.
Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic
Miguel started the Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic weekend, which includes a day party, fashion shows, and polo matches. He started the events to “expose people of color to something they normally don’t get to see.” It’s a celebration of culture, and this year’s event is from Oct. 8 – 10.
Miguel shared that he had “a very special” experience with 2 Chainz when designing his suit for his wedding. The rapper even gave a shout-out to the designer in a song!
Dear Rari, I am a hopeless romantic, and I hate lowering my standards for the opposite sex. I’m 29, and my time is ticking. Should I lower my standards? Yes, no, please help?
