    Hudson grew up in Ridgeway, South Carolina. The inspiring fashion designer at the time attended Bauder College. He majored in fashion and graduated college in 2005 with an associate degree in fashion design - yes, educated King!! Shortly after, he began making a name for himself by making custom designs and styling clients. However, in 2013 his career took a wild turn when he won Bravo’s Styled To Rock, produced by Rihanna. He launched his first brand in 2014, the Sergio Hudson Collection.

    After years of hard work and dedication, the designer finally attended his first Met Gala with KeKe Palmer in 2023. He not only made sure Keke showed out, he dressed several stars at the exclusive event. His roster included Keke Palmer, Lala Anthony, and Rachel Brosnahan - you better work, Mr. Sergio!!! Keke Palmer's dress was the talk of the night. She stunned in an old Hollywood style gown embedded with multi-colored Swarovski crystals. The dress had over 12,000 embellished crystals and came with a baby blue silk cover-up.

The 2022 collaboration included designers like Kika Vargas and La Ligne. Each clothing item speaks to each designer's style. Of course, Sergio didn’t hold back his love for colors and patterns in his Target collaboration. Proving his celebration of style isn’t just for the red carpet, but also for the everyday people who love style, period.
