Advanced nanoGUARD is a revolutionary nanocoating that is entirely undetectable to the human senses and makes clothing stain-resistant in a nontoxic and environmentally safe manner while allowing it to remain highly breathable. Advanced nanoGUARD is an option that can be applied to anything and everything in Powell’s line except lycra and spandex.

Borris Powell Designs features women’s clothing ranging from evening gowns and cocktail dresses to jumpers and outerwear as well as Men’s Custom Suits, Shirts, and Ties. Borris Powell, has been featured in publications and events throughout the Chicago area and has received national recognition. His studio is located in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago and offers regular sales, custom designs, and now, stain-resistant items treated with ANG from ACTnano Inc.

What happens after a Fabulous show?

My first privately held show “Ride Alone F/W 2015” turned out to be nothing less than fabulous as said by many of my clients who were able to experience the show in my showroom. Now that the show is over, it seems the question is what’s next! Well the show gave us phenomenal momentum to spend the rest of the year offering our clientele great pieces from the collection and then work on the next amazing collection!
It was an honor to showcase this collection on the 21st of March at The Red Pump Project Fashion Show as we raised awareness for the AIDS foundation.
I’m excited to be able to take the “Ride Alone F/W Collection” to The Midwest Fashion Week Fashion show in Indianapolis on the 28th of March. If your in the area please join the other designers and myself. Find all of the information at

Year 2015, It Starts Now

This is going to be one exciting year for the Borris Powell Brand. With more of a focus on TV and film, things are looking even more glamours for this already High Glam Brand. Powell has been named the Creative Director of Fashion for the next new hot show SEX + LOVE. “I’m so excited to dress the character of this hot show. I’m know for my classic and romantic looks, but I’m ready to push the sexy in this show,” said Powell. I’ve also teamed up with a major Technology company by the name of ACT. Together we are bringing you the first stain resistant Luxury Garments. Going forward, any of Borris Powell garments the client will have the option to protect it from Stains such as Wine, soy sauce, dirt, ketchup, and so much more.

It’s going to be a Fantastic Year.
