Kai Kühne is a fashion designer based in New York. Born in Bremerhaven, Germany, Kühne began a degree in economics at the University of Hamburg before transferring to AMD, Academy of Fashion and Design, in Hamburg, where he studied fashion design and business. During his studies, Kühne began to work as a model, later signing with Ford Model Management in New York. Whilst modeling, he also attended the School of Visual Arts to study fashion photography and art history. In the autumn of 1998 he met his future design partners of “As Four” and his focus shifted to the International fashion design collective “As Four Future Planet of Style”. In the same year As Four completed its first collection, A/W 1999. In 2002 the design collective was rewarded with the Ecco Domani prize. In Spring 2005, Kühne separated from As Four and created his own brand and subsequent label, “Myself”. Since then he has established the namesake company, “Kai Kühne”. Kai Kühne is sold in boutiques worldwide.
