Tailoring Miles Garrett

featuring Mari Hidalgo King

Our sister, Mari Hidalgo King, styles with precision. With a background in fashion design, she focuses on the elements of clothing construction from weight of fabric to fabric composition, closures, drape, fit, finishes, all the way down to the seam type and thread needed for desired effects. This was especially precise when styling the #1 NFL Draft player for the Cleveland Browns, Miles Garrett. With 15 years as a designer and 10 as a stylist, Mari was fit for the challenge and tailored the hell out of Miles’ clothing on his most recent shoot. “I had to blow open all seams because his muscles were literally bulging through the clothing, so that was definitely unique and awesome to do for an athlete who embodies the ‘peak of fitness,'” so much so that she had to essentially custom-make his clothing through alterations. Luckily he was kind and humble during the fitting, which isn’t a surprise for a big muscular guy who is fascinated with dinosaurs, love songs and poetry. As a football fan, Mari was in awe of him achieving the 1st Round Draft pick; “I wish him all the success at the Browns, but secretly hope, he’ll come be a Cowboy someday soon.”
