Deyonte' Weather

Host Deyonte' Weather

Deyonte’ Weather was born and raised in Chicago, IL. Growing up in Chicago was a challenge, however with the support of his big family and mother Wendy, he made it further than he could have ever imagined. Wendy is a fashionista in her own right, and was Deyonte’s inspiration for fashion.

Deyonte’ began his career studying fashion design at the International Academy of Design and Technology. While in college he was inspired to launch his own fashion line called DW Fashion later changing it Deyonte’ Weather Collection. His first showcase was at the historical Regal Theater in Chicago back in 2008. Since then he has shown numerous collections around the country. Deyonte’ has mastered the art of creating nothing into something.

He has a knack for helping women feel beautiful, and it definitely translates into a saucy aesthetic. His garments are hip, edgy, and luxurious. Deyonte’ use of materials are unlimited. Women love the way they look, and more importantly the way the feel in his garments. Most DWC garments are one-of-a kind, so no showing up finding someone else wearing your outfit. Deyonte' also competed on The Look reality show in Seattle WA and recently competed on Season 16 of Project Runway where he states the show changed his life.
