Ozwald Boateng is a British Savile Row menswear designer with an international reputation for bespoke suiting with a contemporary edge.

Celebrating over 25 years in fashion, Boateng conceived a new silhouette, function and palette for international menswear; creating a concept of style and luxury for men not previously envisaged but desired by men. 

Born in London, Boateng was inspired by the immaculate suits his father wore. Later, he fell in love with an artist and helping her finish her collection for a fashion show, had an insight of his future. Following this vision, he sold his first collection to a menswear shop in Covent Garden.

Boateng has demonstrated his creativity through film. He is known for opening each fashion show with a short film depicting the essence of the collection. His skills in writing and directing short films have been critically acclaimed and awarded.

Boateng’s innovative approach to design has attracted a number of high profile collaborations, such as Coutts & Co, Johnnie Walker and Virgin.
