About Ozwald Boateng

Born in 1967 to Ghanaian immigrants, Ozwald Boateng went on to become the youngest and the first black tailor to open a shop on Savile Row in London.

Back to all stories

He is now the founder of his own brand, whose modernist and tailored designs and pursuit of simplicity have made him an important and influential figure in the fashion industry.

Before reaching fame and success, Ozwald Boateng began his creative journey by learning to sew at just fourteen years old. His passion and talent for design was prominent at a young age and creating his own unique colourful and tailored look is still something that defines his work.

Boateng’s iconic contemporary twist, refined fabrics and contemporary silhouettes offer a unique luxury experience to men of all generations.
