The Designer :
A native New Yorker Kamrul Hasan has been designing since the age of 14. In 2001 his passion for men’s clothing was discovered when he began working for the custom clothier Addison on Madison. Once graduating from college with a degree in graphic design and an evolved vision on men’s fashion, he began creating ties for himself and his close friends originally just as a hobby. Positive responses from friends and strangers prompted him to launch his own label, and in 2008 and the label was born.
