The design work of Thom Browne

Browne began his fashion career as a salesman at Giorgio Armani in New York in 1997. He then worked as a designer for Club Monaco, a subsidiary of Ralph Lauren. He eventually launched his own label in 2001.

His first collection consisted of five suits he made himself and wore every day. Thom quickly gained attention for his unconventional approach to tailoring and proportions. He creates costumes that are deliberately too small or too big for the wearer. Thom also introduced sportswear and preppy-style elements into his designs, such as stripes, checks, diamond patterns and grosgrain trim.

Thom’s breakthrough came in 2004 when he presented his first fashion show in Paris. The show featured models wearing his signature shrunken suits with bare ankles and leather loafers. The show caused a stir and earned him critical acclaim and commercial success. It has also attracted celebrity clients such as Brad Pitt, LeBron James, Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga.

Since then, Thom has expanded its brand to include women’s clothing, eyewear, accessories and fragrances. He has also collaborated with other labels such as Moncler, Brooks Brothers and Supreme.

Browne has won several awards for his work, such as the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year in 2006, 2013, and 2016. He also won the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in 2012; and the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2021.

How did Thom Browne become a designer?

Browne did not study fashion design or take any formal training in the field. He studied economics at the University of Notre Dame and graduated in 1988.

He then moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career but soon realized it was not his passion. Browne began working as a tailor’s assistant and learned the basics of dressmaking and pattern making. He also developed an interest in vintage clothing and began collecting costumes from the 1950s and 1960s.

Browne moved to New York in 1997 to work for Armani and Club Monaco. However, he felt frustrated with the lack of creativity and individuality in the mainstream fashion industry. He decided to create his own brand based on his personal style and his vision of what men should wear. Thom wanted to challenge the conventions of menswear and create something new and original.

The net worth of Thom Browne

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Browne has an estimated net worth of $20 million. Its brand is valued at over $500 million and has over 300 stores worldwide.
