Kenneth Ning moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to New York in 2007, after showing his senior thesis during New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park for the Academy of Art University fashion show. Throughout his career, he has worked at notable labels such as Calvin Klein and Michael Kors.
Since launching his eponymous collection in Fall 2014, Kenneth Ning has implemented his passion for clean tailoring and innovative techniques into a youthful, wearable-cool approach to sportswear. His label has quickly developed a following both at home and abroad, with stockists including International Playground and Isetan. In 2015, he was selected by New York Men's Day to show his Spring 2016 collection for the CFDA's very first menswear-dedicated fashion week
Kenneth utilizes his conceptual point of view and passion for textile development each season to create stories that allow his customers to interpret with their imagination. His original artwork is presented in various mediums to showcase originality and complex techniques. With a keen eye for design details and an ongoing pursuit to redefine modern luxury, Kenneth pushes the boundaries of menswear by elevating traditional silhouettes and blurring gender lines, gaining an interest from both male and female fashion aficionados.
