Iridium Clothing takes Empire to whole new level of platinum, dressing the cast of the Emmy nominated Fox TV show in their smart and edgy street styles.
With the departure of one of last season’s designers, Rita McGhee, Empire turned to this local Wicker Park boutique for some unique pieces to add to it’s wardrobe this season.
The black pants with gold zipper pockets worn by Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) at the Free Lucious concert for the Season Two premiere was supplied by Iridium.
Their mission: Iridium is a clothing company devoted to expand the world’s fashion industry by introducing a new science influenced exciting looks and make it universally acceptable, and accessible.
The owner of Iridium Clothing Co., Platinum has a degree in biochemistry and his wife a degree in fashion. With the slogan “Think n Science” these two thought up a great clothing line that is smart and edgy, that caught the eye of Empire and that the everyday shopper can afford. The unisex designs range from $45 to $375.
With most of their clients being in the music industry, adding Empire to Iridium’s client list was a no brainer for the owners.
Although Iridium Clothing is not listed in the Empire’s closing credits just yet, Platinum is okay with it telling Natalie Bomke of Chicago Fox 32 News, “I feel very happy and feel very fortunate and it’s been amazing. We definitely look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
Iridium is using social media to let their fans know when a new piece will be aired on the show. On Instagram they posted a model wearing a Think Science shirt and the message, “iridiumlife AS SEEN ON #Empire@yazzthegreatest ‘s rocking our Wave Mesh Tank originally $65 is now only $35 TODAY ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, only $35, and YES! Today only!!! Come take advantage! #iridiumlife.” Followed up by the clip of Hakeem wearing the Think Science shirt in the show.
This is a great follow up to their Latino Fashion Week show. Looks like expansion is on the way.
