Meet RayMauri Wiggins of SIMP. By TyRayMauri Designs

Today we’d like to introduce you to RayMauri Wiggins.

SIMP. By TyRayMauri Designs—the Gulf Coast (Mobile, AL)/Arizona based ready-to-wear label founded early 2017 by RayMauri Wiggins and then brought along side for creative director and brand management Tyler DaDesigner Roberts who holds a distinct approach to clothing design and fabrication. These two designers are actually close family members who have identical design and style methods.

The origin story of the brand is rooted in an experimental competition between both designers, with RayMauri and Ty DaDesigner creating unique styles while being ahead of times in Mobile, AL starting in 2015. RayMauri was a collegiate division 1 athlete at the time. Slowly, the two began brain storming from Ty being a fashion fanatic and an expert at designing custom sneakers. The two put together a solid design plan in early 2019, they have a high profile network from NFL, NBA, MLB athletes and as well as high profile entertainers and upcoming artist who are helping project their brand into a household name.

Has it been a smooth road?
Of course there are struggles in every success. I think my biggest struggle is being a perfectionist in my field of design. I held back a lot of designs and collections that where good but not perfect. I think the normal struggles most designers in my field go through such as network, marketing, and presentation I didn’t run into due to me having a high background connection to professional athletes.

Tell us more about the business.
I specialize in high end fashion anything from ready to wear men clothing to cut and sew designed just for the consumer. The thing I’m most proud of with our company is that we are versatile we have three main designers that include myself. I think their level of designing is this world. Tyler Roberts and Kelvin Cuttwell. The thing that sets us apart from other brands and designers is that our designs are not structured to one type of individual or crowd.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I think in 5- 10 years it will be a big shift just because technology is paving a huge wave. I think with the different types of brands will collab with that tech industries to bring out different accessories with in their clothing designs. It will be a huge shift but it will keep the classic looks and feels of good fabric within the shifts that take place.
