Neil Barrett has been designing fashion apparel for over twenty years. Both his grandfather and great-grandfather were master tailors and Neil‘s passion for tailoring began at an early age.
Having graduated from the Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, the designer began his career in the most institutional manner: growing up for ten years with Gucci and Prada, companies where he acquired a deep knowledge of the luxury fashion market and its dynamic, especially with regards to menswear.
Through the strength of his style, with constant thoughtful innovation and by making successful strategic choices the Neil Barrett brand continued to keep growing whilst many other similar companies were affected by the changes in the fashion market. In the first decade of millennium it was evidently a time for large luxury brand corporations many designers were taken over by large conglomerates. However, Neil Barrett remained focused with his vision, step by step, goal after goal. Turnover figures are now consolidated, as the market expands. In Asia the brand is particularly successful and has a strong presence in Japan and Korea as well as enjoying incredible growth in China, which has become the #1 country worldwide, overtaking Italy for Spring Summer 2013.
