VIP Interview: Fabulous Fashion Designer Hilton Hollis


Hello, fashionistas! I am very excited to announce that I interviewed the FABULOUS Mississippi native fashion designer, Hilton Hollis! We chatted about his design career, what inspires his fashion pieces, and of course, Southern food! When you get two Mississippi natives together, talking about good ole’ Southern cooking is absolutely going to happen! What is Hilton’s favorite Southern food? See the VIP Interview video on the YouTube channel here!

The VIP telling designer Hilton Hollis about my Birmingham Fashion Week spread in Town and Gown Magazine.


  • You recently received a honor from the state of Mississippi for your achievements in fashion and philanthropic work. Tell us a little bit about this.

“First of all, I am really honored and amazed that the governor of Mississippi gave me this wonderful award,” says Hilton Hollis. “Growing up in the South and coming from a small town in Mississippi, as a kid I would never in a million years imagine that I would be standing there getting an award from the state that I call home…I give a lot of my time to my philanthropic interests. I also try to give back as much as I can to my home state,” states Hollis. “I am very proud to be a Southerner and a Mississippian! So, for them to recognize my achievements and to give me this award is really humble.”
