This season, NYFW: The Shows and BMW are following designer LaQuan Smith’s journey to the runway. 

Drawing from his experiences growing up in Queens, LaQuan’s earliest muses were those who raised him. Drawn to tailoring and showing off natural, feminine curves, LaQuan’s designs are known for their modern and glamorous look and high quality design. Like BMW, LaQuan designs with attention to detail and is deeply attuned to highlighting form. With each new collection, he further hones his design process, pushing the boundaries of the industry and going bigger and bolder with every season.

Follow along on @NYFW to discover more about LaQuan Smith’s bold design process, and visit to see the legendary design of the 2021 X5 M and X7 come to life.
