New York-based menswear label Duckie Brown was set up in 2001 by Steven Cox and Daniel Silver with the mission to "dress men beautifully." Duckie Brown shows regularly at New York Fashion Week; their collection often emphasizing on hand tailoring, unique fabrics and bold colours. In 2006, Duckie Brown received their first accolade with a nomination for the CFDA Perry Ellis New Menswear Award. This was followed in 2007 with a nomination for the CDFA Menswear Designer of the Year, alongside Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. Within the same year, the label was also featured at the Victoria & Albert Museum as part of New York Fashion Now, a retrospective of up-and-coming American designers. In 2011 Duckie Brown was honoured with the Award for Excellence by the Academy of Art University of San Francisco, and they also launched Mrs. Brown, a collection of women's knits. Today, Duckie Brown is stocked in stores across the world from New York to London to Tokyo.
