From humble beginnings in Florida, the Gbor twins, Jason and Joshua make strides in their career with opening an European-urban boutique in Atlanta -- The House of Peter Maxfield.
It’s more than just shopping. There’s strength in numbers.
Standing at a perfect model height of 6’3 and 6’4 the twins had a great model career. Today, they stand in their Atlanta, Fairburn Road boutique that presents a lifestyle of vintage Hollywood meets contemporary urban clothing wear.
Their parents were fashion industry veterans. The twins followed their parent’s footsteps, and started modeling as children. With their father of Liberians decent and their American mother, they bring an eclectic multicultural aesthetic to the curated pieces throughout the boutique.
“At age five, our Mom put us in modeling. She would always put us in some of the dopest things. We have an old picture with an ice blue suit. That was the aesthetic that stuck with us. That's where our inspiration comes from", says Jason Gbor.
The boutique is not just about shopping. The boutique doubles as a fashion lounge that fosters a community of fashion creatives to congregate and network.
“We don’t have a lot of fashion lounges in Atlanta. There’s strength in numbers. We have different seminars and meetings with fashion designers, hair stylist, and make-up artist. What we want to do is build our on world and community”, says Jason Gbor.
“There are a lot of designers that live in Atlanta. We allow designers to have trunk shows to show their clothing line. We can help you become that fashionista or fashionisto,” chuckles Joshua Gbor.
The boutique works with a charitable foundation, The CAUSE. The Gbor twins have a selection of very well crafted red carpet gowns that they sell and 100 percent of the proceeds from the purchase of those gowns go to the foundation.
The Twins built a house – a fashion house that is. The house stands on the shoulders of a successful modeling career. The Gbor twins live fashion. The House of Peter Maxfield is a natural extension of their career, aesthetic and experiences. The new business endeavor marks a significant accomplishment for Jason and Joshua.
