a little about NB

Neil Barrett has been designing fashion apparel for nearly 20 years. Both his grandfather and great grandfather were master tailors, and Neil's passion for tailoring was cultivated at an early age.

Following his graduation from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, Neil went on to earn his masters degree in men's fashion design at the Royal College of Art in London. Upon graduation, Neil's design attracted the attention of GUCCI and he was offered his first professional position.

Working for GUCCI in the early 1990s in Florence, Neil gained extensive commercial and industrial experience. He was quickly promoted to senior men's wear designer. After 5 successful years, Neil presented a project to PRADA proposing the launch of their first men's wear collection. Under Neil's direction, Prada become world renowned as the forerunner of "minimalist" men's wear.

In 1999, Neil launched the NEIL BARRETT men's wear collection, and a woman's collection was soon to follow. NEIL BARRETT joined the Milan Fashion calendar featuring his men's collection along with some women's looks in January of 2002.

"like the independent designer he is, Neil always brings an element of grit to his handsome collections. There is never pretty-boy pretenses or sexed-up over overtures, just great clothes for real guys"
