Bishme Cromartie Biography
His great-aunt Faye Dean Lacy was the one who taught him basic sewing things. Bishme also used fashion and creating as an escape from growing up in a rough neighborhood; sketching would “bring him to a place that he couldn’t explain but felt right to him.”
When Bishme was 16 years old, he had his first solo fashion show. He has since then been featured and published in Essence, Los Angeles Times, Vogue, Forbes, Elle, BET, and Bravo. Bishme’s fashion presentation, “The Chrysalis,” was featured in New York Fashion Week. About where the name came from, he said, “The name came from the transitional state of the butterfly. The last two years have been my transformation.
I wanted this collection to show beauty effortlessly. The chrysalis is about breaking free, being more connected with yourself, and understanding the new person you are becoming.” Bishme has made his place in the fashion industry and he has gone on to dress celebrities like Niecy Nash, Mel B, Andra Day, Dascha Polanco, and Karrueche Tran.
In an interview, Bishme revealed that his hometown is a source of inspiration for him: “The majority of my collections have been inspired by Baltimore in some way. I love the people here, I love the buildings we have and I also love meeting other talented people. I’m very proud to have grown up here. Baltimore receives a lot of negativity and it’s very annoying, especially when there are people here who are trying to make a difference.”
