There is nothing wrong with making fashion statements. This is normal on the campus of Tennessee State University where students create their own clothing. In recent years a few students have created clothing lines that are buzzing around the Nashville area and Trevor Holmes is preparing to be next.
While balancing school work, his up and coming fashion line, and being involved in the Tennessee State chapter of Collegiate 100, he still finds time to put his talents to use as a celebrity stylist. Always taking on opportunities to style, Holmes has been granted numerous occasions to style King and Major, the children of rapper T.I, Cymia Telleria, and even Jacob Latimore a couple of times.
Holmes, a junior business administration major concentrating in international business hails from music city itself, Nashville, Tennessee. He describes his style as statement-making, trendy, clean, and elevated. A fan of mix match patterns he makes his own clothes and is working towards creating all of his clothing soon.
Holmes is into solid fitted shirts and button downs. Ripped jeans are a favorite to accompany blazers, tailored suits, and statement pieces within the range of shoes for the cherry on top. When it comes to fashion inspiration, he looks to designers Christian Louboutin, Chanel and Versace. This is a lot to accomplish while just in college. “When I think of Trevor, determination and driven comes to mind because he has accomplished so much at the age he’s at right now and it’s only up from this point,” stated friend Brandon Corlew.
His clothing line, Revenu Customs specializes in custom and urban wear. “I’m always rocking something I created and I consider himself the Epitome of Style,” stated Holmes. “Trevor’s style is unique, different and always makes a statement,” stated friend Adrianna Abernathy.
No matter how crazy ideas with fashion seem, just do it because it could be inspirational to many others. This explains Holmes Do’s and Don’ts.
